Exhibitions: Where Oceans Meet
An exhibition of modern and contemporary art that resonates with the pioneering thought of two Caribbean writers: Lydia Cabrera and Edouard Glissant. The exhibition—curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Asad Raza, Gabriela Rangel, and Rina Carvaja.
Although coming from different places and parts of the world, the artists in this exhibition share this foundational space that simultaneously separates and connects them. Echoing the literary, anthropological, and philosophical work of Cabrera and Glissant, their art interrogates how borders shape identities and negotiate imaginary spaces. Their inquiries resonate across mediums and genres, and attempt to answer urgent questions that concern us all today.
