By Vania Andre

Two communities with distinct differences and similarities were brought together through the arts at one of Brooklyn’s cultural mainstays Wednesday night.

On Thursday, March 14, BRIC arts media hosted the opening reception for Bordering the Imaginary: Art from the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and their Diaspora. The exhibition curated by Abigail Lapin Dardashti, a Ph.D. candidate at the CUNY Graduate Center, features the work of 19 Haitian and Dominican artists, whose pieces reflect the shared history of the two countries that make up Hispaniola.
