Calabar Gallery represents underserved artists locally and globally: African, African American and Caribbean artists, with the mission of providing a place for community, exhibition, creative initiatives and projects. It provides a venue for them to innovate, sustain, grow and expand ideas, concepts, projects and leverage opportunities by the use of our space, networks and relationships, and a distinctive location in Harlem New York City
Incredibly excited to begin a new year - like a book, a new chapter, a continuing storyline in a play. We begin 2022 with the spirit of the water tiger. It will be a year of positive changes, one where we continue to grow our gallery and work with artists globally.
Our first exhibition, SYNERGIES: Equity: Elan Cadiz - Cartography: Scarification: Alexandre Kyungu Mwilambwe will be both a local and global - a local Harlemite artist and a global Congolese artist. We already have several inquiries about the work as we have been posting some of the exhibition installation on our instagram page and have a pdf ready to send out. Please feel free to inquire by email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Make your time here in this universe more about friends, family and people. It's an "US" and "WE" mode of critical engagement. Be proactive, be creative and make a difference. Be open, be different and be you. Love, life and most important, laugh, and laugh again.
2022, a new chapter of this book call life.
We are still here.

SYNERGIES Community: Equity: Elan Cadiz Cartography: Scarification: Alexandre Kyungu Mwilambwe
SYNERGIES is a conversation between the work of two artists: North American and New York based Elan Cadiz and Congolese And Kinshasa based Alexandre Kyungu Mwilambwe about mapping their journey's through art ideas and life. Each is a series of pivotal stories capturing community through geography, places, people and moments. Both are using ethnographic processes, material and mediums as well as techniques to talk about equity, migration and the cities they inhabit and work in.
