Contemporary African Diaspora Art – CADA
Black African Cultures have survived centuries of Arab and European slave trades and invasion, domestic oppression, inter-tribal wars and economic exploitation resulting in the displacement of African peoples — the African Diaspora — throughout the world. Over the last thirty years, people of African descent are blossoming and rising up out of their slumber. The result is a new breed of contemporary artist. A renaissance in African cultural awareness is emerging in the global art world with a unique voice that was once grossly underrepresented. Yet Contemporary Africana culture in multiple mediums and genres — music, art, literature, dance, religion, fashion and film — represents some of the world’s most spirited, intellectual, esthetic and inspiring popular culture. CADA is dedicated to giving Contemporary African Art and Artists a platform of exposure to reach and teach new audiences. We produce African art exhibitions, panel discussions, seminars, curriculae, video and film. This web site and multi-media platform were designed to promote the visual art culture of people of African descent in today’s world. Visitors are welcome to taste the visual flavors unique to the people of the African Diaspora.
