AWAY : Femme, Créativité, Diaspora et Dialogue Interculturel – Catalogue de l'Exposition d’art
On the occasion of the 2007 International Women's Day celebrations at UNESCO, the Delegation of the Dominican Republic has brought together the works of ten of its women artists sharing a common denominator – their migration background. Today, the Dominican Republic has become an important place of origin, transit and destiny of migrants. Rosario Rivera Bond, Teresa Díaz, Iliana Emilia, Charo Oquet, Miguelina Rivera, Raquel Paiewonsky, Scherezade García, Natalia Ortega and Inés Tolentino live in New York, Athenes, Miami, Amsterdam, Paris and Montpellier but they all have great renown and influence within the Dominican contemporary art scene. They belong to a group of almost two million Dominicans residing outside of the island and they represent some of the countless Diaspora communities that are increasingly interconnected through extending transnational networks all over the world. This exhibition aims to inspire and open up an intercultural dialogue among the artists and with the general public, addressing the role of women in migration movements, Diaspora networks and intercultural dialogue.
