Where Oceans Meet, an exhibition inspired by the works of Edouard Glissant

With the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy to the United States, Museum of Art and Design at MDC presents Where Oceans Meet, an international group exhibition of 38 artists and collectives investigating the ways borders form identities and negotiate imaginary spaces. The focus of the exhibition stems from the pioneering literary, anthropological, and philosophical work of two Caribbean writers, the Cuban painter, scholar, and ethnologist Lydia CABRERA (1899–1991) and the Martinican philosopher, poet, and literary critic Édouard GLISSANT (1928–2011). The exhbition includes works of French artists, Anri Sala, Kader Attia,  Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Pierre Verger, Yto Barrada, and Sylvie Glissant, widow of Edouard Glissant.
