Exhibition: Across Imaginary Boundaries
On View: Sept. 7 to Dec. 14, 2023
Opening Reception: Thursday, Sept. 7th | 5:30-7:30pm
Through photography, printmaking, painting, ceramics, sculpture and video, Across Imaginary Boundaries brings together artists from these unique regions of the Caribbean diaspora that have created new narratives based in adaption and the multitude of experiences, and art that explore representation, the recovery of ancestral knowledge and connections to nature. Featuring work by 18 artists, this exhibit is curated by Haifa Bint-Kadi and will run from Sept. 7-Dec. 14, 2023.
Within the bounty and beauty of the many cultures of the Caribbean is a shared history plagued in colonization and oppression across geographies. What does it mean to explore identity and place within the foregrounding of this cultural backdrop and in the realm of contemporary art? Artists in this exciting and dynamic exhibit explore a diverse range of artistic production rooted in diasporic identity across the Caribbean while celebrating new modes of thinking about shifting identities, place and home.
