“Collaboration IV African Diaspora” Unifies People Through Our Artistic Spirits With Events From September 12 -22nd At City Place Pop-Up Gallery

Related Companies and ATB Fine Artists & Designers LLC is bringing Collaboration: African Diaspora Exhibition IV to CityPlace in West Palm Beach from September 12-22, 2018. The exhibition will highlight 38 different artists and reflect an African Diaspora, historically known as the movement of Africans and their descendants to places throughout the world – predominantly to the Americas. Throughout the ten day event there will be unique art, music, literature and food experiences, showcasing the diversity of the diaspora. Some of the events are free and others are ticketed. The focus of Collaboration: African Diaspora Exhibition is to show the community that there is another aspect of art & culture in a community that many of the Palm Beach County community have yet to experience.  The Rickie Report shares the details and urges Art Lovers to get ready for a fabulous series of events!

The Collaboration: African Diaspora Exhibition IV  

September  12 – 22, 2018

Some Activities are Free and Open to The Public.  Others Are Ticketed.  Please see below for details!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Collaboration is revisiting its roots.   The “Collaboration” brand was established as a pop-up exhibition format, allowing artists to hosts exhibitions in alternative spaces rather than permanent locations. ATB’s Anthony & Trina Burks, fiber artist Barbara Cheives and jewelry designer, the late Lea Jefferson, founded Collaboration. The first few exhibitions started in the Burks’ home in the Northwood neighborhood of West Palm Beach.  Since then, Collaboration has exhibited over 550 artists under several themes. Originally created in 2013, the Collaboration: African Diaspora Exhibition had displayed a vast variety of artists from around the country.  We have achieved this not by simply hanging art on a wall or sitting it on a pedestal, but by unique story telling through the eyes, hands and lips of the artists themselves.  

With the help of Related Companies, ATB Fine Artists & Designers LLC is bringing Collaboration: African Diaspora Exhibition IV to CityPlace in West Palm Beach from September 13-22, 2018. The exhibition will highlight 38 different artists and reflect an African Diaspora, historically known as the movement of Africans and their descendants to places throughout the world – predominantly to the Americas. Throughout the ten day event there will be unique art, music, literature and food experiences, showcasing the diversity of the diaspora.  “We are proud to partner with ATB Fine Artists & Designers LLC by providing a space for its new and thought-provoking pop-up exhibition,” said Gopal Rajegowda, Senior VP, Related Companies. “Art and culture are at the core of the reimagination of CityPlace and we’re excited to bring local artists to the forefront, allowing the public to experience their talent alongside established international artists.”

collaboration: (n) the act of working jointly.

This is a showcase of artists’, presented in homes & businesses allowing artwork to be viewed by clients in a more realistic environment rather than a gallery or museum. It allows the artists to intermingle with buyers one on one and develop a personal relationship without a third party facilitator.

 

 

The vision of this is to have an African Diaspora (The African diaspora was the movement of Africans and their descendants to places throughout the world – predominantly to the Americas).  This is the third installment of the exhibition.  Originally created in 2013, the African Diaspora had displayed a vast variety of artists from around the country.  We have achieved this not simply hanging art on a wall or sitting it on a pedestal. It was accomplished by unique story telling through the eyes, hands and lips of the artists themselves.  Created and curated by the ATB Fine Artists & Designers LLC, the “Collaboration” brand was established as a Pop-up exhibition format, which allows artists to hosts exhibitions in alternative spaces & not at a permanent location.  ATB’s Anthony & Trina Burks, fiber artist Barbara Cheives and jewelry designer, the late Lea Jefferson, founded “Collaboration”.  The first few exhibitions started in the Burks’ home in Northwood. Since then “Collaboration” has exhibited over 350 artists under several themes. (I.e. Salute to Women, Students of Collaboration, Boys to Men)  The focus of Collaboration: African Diaspora Exhibition is to show the community that there is another aspect of art & culture in a community that many of the Palm Beach County community have yet to experience.    The concept of art itself does not have to be in reflection of the diaspora.

We hope that after you read this article and see the exhibit, you will contact Mary to invite her to bring her exhibit to a venue near you.

Mary Catello With “Stand Up SPEAK OUT”

 

 

Mary Catello tells The Rickie Report, “Six months of research, interviews, and studio work are coming to the end.  Art can be a visual voice for social and political issues… From the minute I started this project, I knew I wanted it to be seen by thousands, millions, everyone. I want a face and a story to help bring awareness to sexual abuse. I want people to see how the majority of victims go through life never sharing their pain”.

 

“I’m asking all viewers that have experienced any assault or abuse to safely add a “post it” comment to the walls surrounding the girls. I anticipate an  overwhelming number of “post its” adding up as “Stand Up SPEAK OUT” tours the United States. I want the magnitude of “post its” to add to the power of the installation. I want the visual of these girls to promote open conversations about respect, protection, and changing our abusive society. I want males and females to know they can and should stand up and speak out”!   Mary will have printed literature and information for help-lines and resources.
