Expressions of cultural connections and traditions can take the form of many things—including food, literature, dance, craft forms, and visual art. Different societies, and individuals and groups within them, have various ways of reflecting significant aspects of their heritage. We invite YOU to create art for Cultural Reflections that emphasizes aspects of your culture, heritage, family traditions, or way of life.
This theme was inspired, in part, by the work of Haitian-born artist Edouard Duval-Carrié whose work is on loan to RAM for display in Blurry Boundaries: Contemporary Artists, Imagination, and the Spaces Between through August 27.
Looking at historical romanticized paintings, Duval-Carrié created an imaginary landscape that emphasizes the importance of cultural identity in the Caribbean.
Committed to supporting diverse artists, voices, and audiences, RAM is pleased to announce a collaboration with the Black Arts Council of Racine (BACR). The BACR has worked with RAM staff to develop Cultural Reflections and invited artists to participate. Artists not associated with the BACR, but affiliated with RAM in other ways, are also encouraged to participate—please see below for details.
