Maps of Social Displacement: Conversations on Venezuelan Identity

Tumbao Contemporary Design Studio based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn is a local store that provides representation to Latinx emerging artists. We will be hosting an exhibition that will include the work of NYC-based Venezuelan artists including Cassandra Mayela. Her woven sculpture incorporates clothing and textiles owned by Venezuelans who migrated to Tri-state New York, mapping cherished memories and familiarity away from homeland. Cassandra will be sharing her progress β€œLive at the Studio,” cultivating a space of comfort and support for the shared experiences of Venezuelans as well as an overall welcoming environment to gain insight of Venezuelan displacement. The event will take place Friday July 23rd – Sunday July 25th at Tumbao Studio located on 108 N 7th St, New York, New York. On Friday from 12-6pm, there will be a soft opening followed by the official reception held Saturday night from 5-8pm with a dj set by JUNF. Donations will be collected for the Venezuelan and Immigrants Aid non-governmental organization that provides protection for forced migrant and asylum-seeking communities in New York City.

For many of us, our lives have been turned upside-down by the Covid-19 pandemic public health emergency, but the fundamental human need to create remains intense – even if it is on pause for some of us momentarily. I, @soude.dadras urged artists from around the globe to join me and other artists in bringing attention to the power of the human spirit through creativity across the globe with our current project Drawn Together. Drawn Together is a collaboration of hope, of honor, and of storytelling for these extraordinary times.
?
The goal of the “Drawn Together” project is to record for the world how the creative community persevered together through the tumult of change, even though we remained largely apart.
