"I thought that it was very important for us to make sure that African-American art was well represented in our collection.” - Jorge Pérez
"Historically the phrase Black Art has been applied to any art made by a person of African descent or art made by anyone which substantially reflects or is influenced by Black culture, e.g. African, African American or Caribbean." - Jerry Thomas
BUT ... WHATS THE FUTURE, LETS TALK ABOUT IT.
do YOU basel ? was created to promote an African American presence at ART Basel 2012. ART BASEL MIAMI is a coveted destination for artist of any color. An American mecca for all collectors and art enthusiast. Art Basel = world class art.
do YOU basel ? is moving beyond color, culture and the national origin of the artist and introduces a broad range of work from various artist who would appeal to the African American Arts community.
CHANGE means GROWTH and growth is disturbing.
