This past Miami Art Week, we met Mary Lou Nge-Secke , curator of 193gallery. This French gallery advocate for the voices of the diverse artists they represent.

Among the many represented artists are Thandiwe Muriu and Jean-Marc Hunt, who uses their own voices to speak on topics such as the lack of representation in their industries and their places as individuals in society.

We had the pleasure of attending Derrick Adam’s @derrickadamsny new exhibition “Come as You Are” at Gagosian Gallery last Thursday. Adam’s art radiates Black joy and relaxation, offering a vibrant celebration of life. The artist intentionally centers celebration in his work, infusing humor, color and imagination into the narrative of the black experience✨. His art is a testament to the power of creativity and leisure and this exhibition immerses us in a world where the familiar mingles with the absurd, emphasizing the power of imagination in our lives.

“Photography or image-based art will inevitably be the most influential art form moving forward, and the works that we’re dealing in—these small photographs from history—are the seeds of that movement.”
- Bruce Silverstein, Eponymous Gallery
