ART- ICULATING SOME THOUGHTS

My presentation will be a survey of noteworthy artistic interventions, exhibitions and articulations in the Anglophone Caribbean alongside a look at how art-making is being reformatted globally in the twenty-first century. My hypothesis is that the practice of Art in the Caribbean as in many other places is premised on notions of art that prevailed and flourished in the twentieth century; this being the formulation of a series of objects, actions or discursive events that circulated primarily, if not exclusively, within rareified art circuits. The idea is not to postulate anything but to raise some questions and hope for a stimulating debate with my audience.
