Exhibition: Relational Undercurrents: Contemporary Art of the Caribbean Archipelago
The exhibition proposes an “archipelagic model” — defining the Caribbean from the perspective of its archipelago of islands, as distinct from the continental experience—to study issues around race, history, the legacy of colonialism, and the environment. Relational Undercurrents emphasizes thematic continuities of art made throughout the archipelago and its diasporas, challenging conventional geographic and conceptual boundaries of Latin America. Curated by Jaime DeSimone for PMA; Organized by the Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA), Long Beach, California, a project of the Getty Foundation’s PST:LA/LA Initiative.
