Miami is Not the Caribbean. Yet it Feels Like it.
While Florida sits on the Caribbean’s northern border, many in Miami call it a Caribbean city. But is it? While the city is home to many Cubans, Haitians and people from across the Greater and Lesser Antilles, does life in Miami resemble or reflect the culture of the region? Curated by Danny Baez, “Miami is Not the Caribbean. Yet it Feels Like it,” asks artists of Caribbean heritage for their answers to these questions, and how they view their personal relationship to Miami.
