In this paper, I explore how the notion of African diaspora has been used as a framework for the reassessment of essentialized identity narratives in field of art history and curatorship, between the1980s and 2000s. For this, I examine the emergence of the concept in the field of cultural studies and how it served as a tool for unsettling the narratives of belonging associated to nation and ethnicity. Such contextualization provides the ground for the analysis of the dilemmas introduced by a diasporic perspective in relation to the field of African art and the local-global art discourse.
