As Far As the Eye Can See: Diaspora Vibe Cultural Arts Incubator Puerto Rico Biennale

The Universidad del Sagrado Corazon in Santurce, Puerto Rico, hosted this year’s DVCAI International Cultural Exchange, in association with Professor of Photography Nitza Luna, and Rosie Gordon-Wallace, Director, Diaspora Vibe Cultural Arts Incubator of Miami, Florida. During their stay on the island, 26 artists from diverse backgrounds, working in various media, converged to explore the concept of “cultural Diaspora,” intellectually and creatively. This was the fourteenth exchange organized by Diaspora Vibe Cultural Arts Incubator, and the second for Puerto Rico.

Upon arrival in Puerto Rico, artists go directly to the gallery at the Universidad del Sagrado Corazon to install their work.
