Contemporary Art of the Caribbean Archipelago


Relational Undercurrents is the first major survey of 21s-century Caribbean art. The archipelago serves as an analytical framework, focusing on thematic continuities in the art of the Caribbean islands. Hispanophone artists engage in visual conversation with those from Anglophone, Francophone, Dutch, and Danish backgrounds. Relational Undercurrents works against traditional understandings of the Caribbean as discontinuous—isolated and beyond comprehension as a result of heterogeneous populations, multiple linguistic traditions, and diverse colonial histories. The exhibition is divided into four sections: Conceptual Mappings, Perpetual Horizons, Landscape Ecologies, and Representational Acts. Each grouping features artists whose works have informed and shaped those themes. Relational Undercurrents includes painting, installation art, sculpture, photography, video, and performance.
