October is Domestic Violence awareness month, and black women artists and activists, Alexis Caputo, Alicia Wallace and Ruth Jeannoel partner to present a visual arts exhibition and community based engagement workshop, highlighting violence against women and in honor of Domestic Violence awareness month. This artist talk and exhibit will follow with a second on November 3rd, as a continuum and introduction of Caputo’s AFRO DIARIES (Visual Verse Series).
Afro Diaries is a project for, by and about women of the diaspora. The project is multidisciplinary, multicultural, intergenerational and international. The project work is centered, compelling and offers a window into the landscape of miscarriages women endure, whether addressing the critical issue of identity, race, class, gender, sexism, sexuality, religion, cultural differences, social, political, human rights issues and other concerns creating conflict and inequality in society. The Afro Diaries series and women's collective, is to foster a movement by a heritage of women, serving women and girls from all walks of life. Multicultural and inter-generational audiences can benefit from this movement nationally and internationally. The AFRO DIARIES (Visual Verse Series) consist of the visual arts mediums of Painting, Mixed Media, Sculpture Film and Photography.
