The Miami New Times

Exhibition sites are located in the city's beautiful Art Deco District, within walking distance of the beach and many hotels.
It's been called...the Olympics of the ART World
Melting from the pot into the fire
Artists of color examine the notion of safety and security and why the idea of the multicultural melting pot may not work anymore

It makes sense that art from the islands comes to Diaspora Vibe Gallery in the Design District. I've been exposed to so many Caribbean artists by coming here. I've met artists here from St Martin, Trinidad, Jamaica and Cuba. Miami is definitely a hub for the Caribbean

Diaspora Vibe is to be congratulated for presenting an Asian perspective here in Miami, where the conversation about immigrant identity revolves almost entirely around the geography of Latin America.
Final Fridays as they have become known, are the ultimate in artist chic where word of mouth draws the cognoscenti once a month for six months.

Gordon Wallace is clearly the catalyst in constant motion seemingly always cajoling, cheering on, she works the crowd at the openings.

There's no other place in Miami, that offers so much. You get the entire package here, art, music, delicious food and poetry.

After one long summer in Miami, everyone is transformed.

Rosie Gordon-Wallace, long a Miami pioneer in discovering emerging Caribbean and Latin artists, is riding the Basel momentum in hopes of bringing wider Caribbean artists and the immigrant experience. Gordon-Wallace has the pulse of what is happening on the local scene and in the Caribbean region. Spring said - She's smart to get herself and her artists to take advantage of Art Basel.
This is not a typlical commerical gallery space. I have a sence of urgency to leave behind a legacy where art is sold; the physical work and their ideas housed.
This incubator space is documenting the experiences of those of us living in the diaspora, the immigrant experience, which does not have any boundaries of color, curly hair, long hair, short hair, culture.
