Event description
Libations: Seen & Felt – An interactive workshop that navigates how art practices participate in intersectionality.

About this Event

Libations: Seen & Felt is an interactive workshop that navigates how art practices participate in intersectionality with freedom, time, and space as the focal point. Octavia will engage participants in various activities anchored in performance, the literary arts, and visual art as tools to embed the conversation in the body. Participants will engage in dialogue around the experiences thereafter as it relates to being black, and/or overall marginalized. The goal is to have participants think about how their practice can speak with multiple tongues.

Yearwood is an artist, programmatic curator, and author. Yearwood creates and host programs for arts institutions, organizations, and companies nationally. Over the last 15 years, aside from being an arts educator, Yearwood was the Director of the FREE! Art Fair during Art Basel for Spinello Projects, named the best author in Miami, most interesting by the Miami New Times in 2018.

This event is part of the "Inter | Sectionality: Diaspora Art from the Creole City" exhibition, a bold, multidisciplinary exhibition featuring predominantly Miami-based artists from across the Caribbean, with work ranging from photography to site-specific installations with luminescent sand and a towering sculpture. You can see the free show until Nov. 14, 2019 – March 20, 2020. It is open Tuesday – Friday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Weekends 1 – 6 p.m. at 500 17th Street NW (Atrium Galleries).

The exhibit, featuring 25 Miami-affiliated artists and two guest artists, challenges social justice, celebrates identities, and bridges communities through contemporary art and scholarship.
