BLACK VOICES / BLACK MICROCOSM April 8 —May 9 2020

About

mi·cro·cosm
/ˈmīkrəˌkäzəm/
noun
noun: microcosm; plural noun: microcosms

* a community, place, or situation regarded as encapsulating in miniature the characteristic qualities or features of something much larger

Together, these 31 artists’ works—paintings, sculptures, drawings, and mixed media—constitute a presentation that shines a light on a diverse set of practices, fields of explorations, and techniques. There are young artists, on the verge of making their names, and older ones who are already established in their native countries and on the international scene. Some of them are working on their graduation shows, while others already have long lists of past exhibitions to their name. All come together from a global diaspora, for a global conversation.

Destinee Ross is a young art curator and advisor. She has co-curated international group exhibitions for the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA) and advises several private institutions and international collectors, particularly—but not exclusively—within the field of contemporary African and African American art.

The main body of her curatorial work over the last three years has been carried out in her capacity as head of curation and acquisitions for a major Black Arts Foundation opening in 2021.

BLACK VOICES / BLACK MICROCOSM is the most recent installment in a series of exhibitions at CFHILL where we invite independent curators to open doorways to some of the art world’s most current art scenes. Past exhibitions in the series have presented selections of works from the art scenes of Shanghai, Los Angeles, New York, London, and Tel Aviv. We’d also like to thank the writers who have contributed to the catalogue for sharing their expertise in this particular field.
