"Storyteller Robert Young will be activating his signature portrait series YOUNG WORLD FACES (as seen at the Pan American Games and El Clasíco Miami) and celebrating the 10-year anniversary of Freetown Reborn, the documentary film and photographs captured in Sierra Leone West Africa."
Headliner Market Group & City of Miami Commissioner Keon Hardemon’s Soul of Basel: The Art Of Conversation at the Black Archives Historic Lyric Theater sets the perfect stage for the celebration of these storytelling visual works and Robert Young’s continued mission to bring the world closer together, one nation at a time. As 2019 represents the 400 year anniversary of the first slave ships departing from the west coast of Africa, it is only fitting that images from the region are set to be displayed in Overtown during Art Basel Miami Art Week.
