(S)HOW at Medulla Art Gallery

My first curatorial project, 17th June - 15th July 2015, Medulla Art Gallery, Port of Spain, Trinidad.

(S)HOW is an exhibition by five artist friends who are all contemporary practitioners working in Trinidad and Tobago. The show originated from a shared interest in each other’s work and a desire to exhibit as a group. (S)HOW brings together the artists’ individual concerns and ways of working across varied media into one shared space. Outside of the relationships between the artists, the show hopes to investigate the relationships between their practices, objects and gestures. Exhibiting artists include: Jaime Lee Loy, Alicia Milne, Nikolai Noel, Tamara Tam-Cruickshank and Luis Vasquez La Roche.

Video Islands screening

Go back where yuh come from will be screened 29th January 2015 in María Elena Ortiz’s Video Islands presentation at the Anthology Film Archive in New York, a curated selection of video works from her research trips in the Caribbean in 2014. 

Video Islands is a program of contemporary visual shorts produced by artists from or working in Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Martinique, Trinidad and Tobago. This presentation includes videos, film shorts, documentation of performances, new media practices, and experimental narratives that portray the nuances of Caribbean experiences. Some of the works narrate personal stories, sit on the realm of nonlinear experimentation, or use animation to explore social imaginaries through classic Caribbean motifs. An investigation of the moving-image, Video Islands is the result of a research initiative in the Caribbean supported by Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros and Independent Curators International.
