Since the dawn of the Renaissance in the 15th century, artistic expression has always been the gateway to pinpointing the pulse of a period.  Art serves as a cultural barometer utilizing visual tools in an effort to catalyze a social and psychological paradigm shift. These shifts have inspired some of history’s most important moments enabling societies to gain a glimpse into their soul through art. As we move through the twenty-first century, there has been a new call to recognize the vital impact that contemporary art has on popular culture. This call to action underpins the need for a new voice and visual vocabulary reflecting of the multicultural world, which has now become our new societal norm.

We present to you: ‘The Gift’! The brainchild of multi-dimensional artist, Delphine Diaw Diallo, ‘The Gift’ seeks to continue the tradition of dynamic artistic movements that challenge the psyche of humanity in the journey toward defining a new cultural voice for the 21st Century. 

The Gift is an Art Book that will create a universal language of cultural expression that seeks to conceive a new mythical narrative daring to defy the status quo.  "The Gift ' will also introduce the  video project " the Gift NY" featuring artists living in New York City and establishes a connection between art and The Gift .

The Gift will reflect this new narrative that highlights a cultural gumbo propelling the next generation of humanity to create their own myths, traditions, rituals and icons.

Diallo’s multimodal method of cultivating a new perspective will reframe the religious, social and ideological pedagogy that has been ingrained into the societal subconscious. 

The Gift is a viscerally evocative multimedia experience that will stir your spirit and tantalize your mind to aspire to new heights.
