Diaspora Vibe Gallery is pleased to present Exodus, a new group exhibition of time-based artists living in Miami, throughout the U.S., England, Puerto Rico, Brazil, and Peru. Featured artists include: Rosamary Berrios-Hernandez, Chantal James, Ines Amado, Fulana, Monique Diaz, Maria Lino, Aurora Molina, Tulu Bayar, Aleli Egues, Maryann De Leo, Jorge Rojas, Beatrice Glow, Cristina Molina, and Jose Balado Diaz.

Exodus examines video as a canvas for dialogue, its influence on world events and popular culture, and the migration that artists embody. Each video is exposed continuously and concurrently on separate monitors and walls, engaging viewers through time and space to interact and absorb, as they experience the dialogue of visual effects and aesthetics. This platform allows each work to be experienced as its own conversation.

Exodus provides a time-based portal for artists to impart perceptions or observations, taking precedence over traditional aesthetic and material concerns. This freedom allows documentation to take place outside the gallery, thus challenging traditional representations of art.
