Exhibition: Visual Life Of Social Affliction: A Small Axe Project

This group exhibition seeks to grapple with the ways in which Caribbean visual practice critically engages experiences of social suffering, wagering that visual art constitutes one of the most vital expressive optics through which to explore social life. 


Recognizing the real senses in which the Caribbean not only was born in the structural violence of Native genocide, African slavery, and Indian indenture instituted by colonial powers, but has been sustained since then by the relentless continuation of institutionalized disrespect, disregard, and dishonor, this project seeks to capture the  destructive impact of dominating powers on the lives of Caribbean  people.
