Caribbean Art Initiative hosted its first Talks Program, coinciding with the opening of the 58th Venice Biennale. Curated by Giscard Bouchotte and entitled “The Caribbean in Venice: Connecting South”, focusing on the Caribbean representation within this meeting point of historically Western European arts.

We are committed to raising awareness of the deep cultural significance and potential of the Caribbean. Simultaneously, we recognize the urgent need to assist artists and organizations throughout the region in their efforts to attain visibility and critical recognition in the international art world.

Going forward, we will continue our work on behalf of Caribbean artists and institutions, organizing inbound and outbound residencies and connecting Caribbean and international artistic networks with each other.
