• Casa Azul of Greensboro & The African American Atelier

Latitude refers both to a place and a celestial object in relation to the equatorial mark we humans invented. It is an imaginary line around the globe.  It both occupies north and south imaginations. In inviting Latitudes, we are inviting artists to submit artworks and practices that engage with the Afro-Latinx expressions in their diversities, expansions, and imaginations. Across the globe and across the skies, under and above the oceans.

The exhibition is a collaboration between Casa Azul of Greensboro and The African American Atelier and will take place in the The African American Atelier gallery in the Greensboro Cultural Center in September and October of 2023 in North Carolina.

Deadline to submit art: Sunday, June 11th, 2023 by 11:59 pm

About the Curator and Juror
Paula Damasceno is an Afro-Latinx awarded visual artist and emerging curator.

Damasceno's work intersects photography and material culture to express and discuss culture through form and shape. Her works speak of a multi-diasporic self and the possibility of self-transcendence through a back-and-forth dance between individuality and plurality. Damasceno was selected to participate in the Light Work Artist Residency in 2022 and is currently pursuing an MFA at The School of the Institute of Art and Design of Chicago from which she was awarded a full merit-based scholarship.

She holds a BFA with a concentration in Photography from UNC Greensboro. She was awarded the 2020 Hariban Juror's Choice Award chosen by Lucy Gallun and the Silver 2020 Fine Art Award from the Budapest International Photo Award. She exhibited at the Weatherspoon Museum and the Southeastern Center for Photography. Her first solo exhibition is scheduled for the Winter 0f 2024 at the Horace Williams House in Chapel Hill.
