Resistance, Roots, and Truths - 1st ICA Alumni Exhibit: is an art exhibit showcasing the work of emerging visual artists, facilitators, and performers who have completed the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI), Innovative Cultural Advocacy Fellowship (ICA) program. Curated and organized by (ICA) alumni Yelaine Rodriguez, and Carlos Jesus Martinez Dominguez. Each participant is an ICA alum. The Innovative Cultural Advocacy Fellowship (ICA) provides a platform for emerging artist to recognize and share the history of under-represented communities. Over 70 emerging visual artists, facilitators, educators, and performers have participated in the program.
11 ICA Alumni of various talents were chosen to focus on the Caribbean Cultural Center of the African Diaspora mission statement to "integrate art, education, and activism" in our community. Each piece celebrates and acknowledges the shared vision with the center since art is one of our most powerful tools of Love and Resistance. This exhibit features various art mediums by visual and non-visual artists, in an effort to celebrate the common ground shared amongst the Alumni and the Institution. Although some stories may overlap or share a common theme, the difference in each artist’s story is captured and acknowledged to demonstrate each person’s truth as it applies to them.
Co-curated by ICA Alum Carlos Jesus Martinez Dominguez & Yelaine Rodriguez.
