Afro-Argentine Cultural Identity Exploration



While here in Buenos Aires, Argentina, I plan to conduct research and gain inspiration for a future series of art pieces which will characterize the narrative of cultural backgrounds of Afro descendants of Argentina.

As stated by Tumelo Mosaka in his book, Negotiating Identity, “Artists, writers, and academics have engaged in a critical debate about the meaning of African culture in a postmodern, global society.”
As an African-American Artist myself, issues of identity, race, and globalization are meaningful and personal. I am questioning the ways in which identity is shaped in regards to family, ethnicity, and geographic location. My focus is the cultural identities of black males that include those from the African Diaspora. This includes African-Americans, Afro-Caribbeans, and Afro-Latinos.
