PHILIPSBURG--St. Maarten artist Ras Mosera will be among international Black artists, creatives and scholars converging during Art Basel/Miami Art Week 2022, in Miami, Florida.
Visitors to Miami Art Week 2022 will be introduced to some major figures of African contemporary art and the vitality of the Black art scene with AfriKin Art 2022.
Opening with a VIP preview on Thursday, December 1, and closing on Sunday, December 4, AfriKin Art 2022 features a solid line-up of international artists, creatives, performers and scholars.
“AfriKin Art 2022: The Beautyful Ones Are (Not Yet) Born” has a line struck through the “Not Yet” in its title to highlight the ones who are indeed born and the genuineness and power of these creatives and innovators. Though often unrecognised, the “Beautyful Ones” are present here and now and are influencing what is next.
The artists assembled in this exhibition have defied the disadvantages of otherness and are making art history, it was stated in a press release.
AfriKin Art’s five days of ancillary programming include artist talks, book readings and signings, panel discussions, performance art and an exhibition featuring works by some of the world’s most gifted visual artists.
Mosera will be represented at AfriKin Art with four of his paintings. The St. Lucia-born self-taught expressionist is a long-time resident of St. Maarten.
