[Many thanks to Peter Jordens for bringing this item to our attention.] In the context of the 2019 África en América Festival, the City Hall of Panama is sponsoring the art exhibition: “Afro Poderosas.” The exhibition opened on May 17 and will be open until June 5, 2019, on the ground floor of the Hatillo Building, located on Cuba Avenue, Panama City, Panama. The exhibition features artwork by Kayla Reefer, Giana de Dier, and Sol Taylor.
Description: Within the framework of the 2019 África en América Festival, aimed at exalting Afroculture in Panama as one of the first roots of our identity, and highlighting its integration into the cultural DNA of our country, we present the “Afro Poderosas” art exhibition, open from May 17 to June 5, on the ground floor of the Hatillo Building (Avenida Cuba).
“Afro Poderosas” is a project that joins three women artists with different training environments but with the same feelings towards their roots and search for their identity, their reasons, and their raison d’être. Through the Afro-descendant perspectives Kayla Reefer, Giana de Dier, and Sol Taylor, we discover the foundations on which our multicultural society has been built, in order to awaken interest in our roots and to build a reflective critique of who we were, who we are, and who we want to be.
