artnet Asks: Curator Dexter Wimberly on Creating Community in a Globalized World

https://news.artnet.com/art-world/people/dexter-wimberly-interview-984887

Interview Excerpt:
Dexter Wimberly’s curatorial practice works to bring together artists of different backgrounds into one unified creative space. He manages to create a cohesive show where each work interacts with the other, in a way that visually alludes to global exchange. His current show “A Fast, Moving Sky” presents multiple perspectives on the African diaspora and its influence on people, culture, and art.... "We [the Aljira team] have a wonderful schedule of exhibitions opening at Aljira over the next six months, including an exhibition of international video art co-curated with Larry Ossei-Mensah titled “COMM | ALT | SHIFT,” as well as solo exhibitions of artists Duron Jackson and Brendan Fernandes. In 2018, I will organize two major solo museum exhibitions including Derrick Adams at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York and Margaret Bowland at Contemporary Art Museum Raleigh in North Carolina."

Dominique Hunter (@dhunter110) is a multi-disciplinary artist who lives and works in Guyana. Her artistic practice critiques the (non)-representation of Black female bodies in art history and stereotypical portrayals in contemporary print media. Her recent work has expanded to include strategies for coping with the weight of those impositions by examining the value of self-care practices.
°
Hunter has exhibited within the Caribbean and the United States. She has been an artist-in-residence with Caribbean Linked IV and the Vermont Studio Center where she was awarded the Reed Foundation Fellowship. Hunter is the Sunday Arts columnist for the Guyana Chronicle.
°
Dominique alongside fellow artists of Guyanese heritage form part of CCCADI's upcoming exhibition, 'Liminal Space'.
°
'Liminal Space' brings together these artists who via photography, painting, sculpture, installation, video, textile, and mixed media, bear witness to what drives one from their homeland as well as what keeps one psychically tethered to it.

This month marks the debut of Aljira's latest exhibition, COMM | ALT | SHIFT, curated by Larry Ossei-Mensah and Dexter Wimberly. Centered around international video art, the exhibition includes the work of 14 contemporary artists who use video to explore the complexities and angst of modern times. COMM | ALT | SHIFT unpacks video as a ubiquitous technology for entertainment, education and escape, as well as a powerful tool for surveillance, manipulation and control. Participating artists include #CarlosAires, #Bolo ( #SaksAfridi and #QinzaNajm), #DelphineFawundu, #GenevieveGaignard, #Jibade-KhalilHuffman, #GeorgeJenne, #MiattaKawinzi, #LinKe, #JenLiu, #JillianMayer, #NontsikeleloMutiti and #DyaniDouze, #FedericoSolmi, #JanStaller, and #RodrigoValenzuela. Join us for the opening reception SATURDAY, JULY 22, from 2–5pm!

At #MappaMundi, Frank Bowling's epic exhibition curated by #OkwuiEnwezor at @haus_der_kunst in Munich, Germany. ----------------------------------------
@aljiraart was the first organization to give Frank Bowling a retrospective exhibition setting the stage (unknowingly) for his membership as the first black man to be invited to become a member of the Royal Academy of the Arts in its 200 year history and to be honored with an Order of the British Empire (OBE). Okwui Enwezor, Director of the Haus der Kunst, Munich, who received one of his early opportunities as a curator at Aljira and curated the 2015 Venice Biennale, just put Bowling into the cannon with Mappa Mundi, an epic survey of Bowling's work setting the stage for a retrospective at the Tate Britain in 2020. Newark's in the house, y'all!!! #contemparyart #aljira #newarkart #newark
