For the 2022 edition of Art Basel and Miami Art Week, AfriKin Art presents The Beautyful Ones Are (Not Yet) Born, Acknowledging the Beauty of The Creation Existing Here, Now and Next. International Black Artists, Creatives and Scholars Converge During Miami Art Week to Exert Their Power and Influence for Education, Celebration And The Canceling of Neocolonialism Within the Arts Market.  The exhibit will be on display from Wednesday, November 30 to Sunday, December 4.

Experience the vitality of the Black art scene with this year's selection of major figures in African contemporary art as well. AfriKin Art 2022 opens with a VIP Preview on Thursday, December 1st and ends on Sunday, December 4th, featuring a solid line-up of international artists, creatives, performers and scholars.

AfriKin Art 2022: The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born has a line struck through the “Not Yet” in its title to highlight the ones who are indeed born and the genuineness and power of these creatives and innovators.  Though often unrecognized, the “Beautyful Ones” are present — here and now and are influencing what is next.  The artists assembled in this exhibition have defied the disadvantages of otherness and are making art history.  

AfriKin Art’s five days of ancillary programming include artist talks, book readings and signings, panel discussions, performance art and a stellar exhibition featuring works by some of the world’s most gifted visual artists.
