Exhibition: Adriana Monsalve, "Diaspora Diction"

Fenwick Gallery at George Mason University presents Diaspora Diction, an exhibition of photography from artist and publisher Adriana Monsalve. The exhibition will run from May 28 through July 26, 2019, with an opening artist’s talk and reception on May 28 at 2:00pm in Fenwick Library (room 2001). This exhibition is presented as part of the Mason Libraries Artist-in-Residence pilot program.

Diaspora Diction collects Monsalve’s photographs, photobooks, and ongoing research into identity—and illusions of identity—in the African and Latinx diaspora. The exhibition features images from Monsalve’s first photobook, Clear as Black, a deeply personal and investigative documentary of the community and stories of individuals with a rare type of albinism found in Puerto Rico. Diaspora Diction also includes a second, separate body of work in progress, tentatively titled Novena. Photographed during a subsequent visit to Puerto Rico, Novena follows the family of Ricardito, one of subjects of Clear as Black, in the days immediately following the death of his grandfather, the family patriarch.

As part of her artist’s talk, Monsalve will discuss the works included in Diaspora Diction as well as the research conducted during her residency time at Mason, where she continued exploring questions of identity and expanded her scope to the Melungeon communities in Appalachia.
