Art of the Diaspora

Johannesburg to New York, an exhibition curated by Kimberli E. Gant ends a six-month run on May 17th.

The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA) bills the exhibition as "the first retrospective of the collaborative work between South African artist Samson Mnisi and New York artist Cannon Hersey...these artists have created mixed media imagery that is socially conscious while also being visually stimulating. Mnisi incorporates ancient Zulu symbolism and rituals with Hersey's captivating photography to give viewers insider and outsider perspectives on contemporary South African societies."


Don't miss it.


MoCADA is located at 80 Hanson Place at South Portland in Downtown Brooklyn, near the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
