DISAPORA – a scattering, a dispersion, a migration, a loss of homeland. Artists are asked to create original works that examine what it means to be separated from your roots, your center, your power, your ancestors, your community, your culture, your land, your home, your people – real or imagined, physical or metaphorical. Is repatriation or reconciliation possible? Desired? Wide interpretations are encouraged.
About the Exhibition: “Diaspora” is part of WCA’s national WCA Conference that takes place from February 13-16, 2013 in New York, NY. The Women’s Caucus for Art Conference is held in conjunction with the College Art Association (CAA) Conference. WCA is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization and an affiliate society of CAA.
