Panel: A Postcolonial Paradox: Caribbean Art & Economy

This panel examines the postcolonial world of the Caribbean through different lenses — the economy, visual art, and literature. 
Inspired by the current exhibition, Coffee, Rhum, Sugar & Gold: A Postcolonial Paradox, which looks at the legacy of European colonialism in the Caribbean through the work of 10 contemporary artists — whether connected to the Caribbean by birth or focused on the region by choice, the exhibiting artists use their work as a means of examining the relationship between the power structure: those who are controlled by it, those who benefit from it, and those who actively seek to liberate themselves from it.
