On the Map at Close Encounters exhibit in Florida

On the Map will be screened at the Art Gallery at Florida Gulf Coast University in "Close Encounters: Contemporary Art by Caribbean Women", which has been curated by Patricia Fay.

In the 21st century, women artists from the Caribbean region are producing intensely personal interpretations of their heritage in a range of media including photography, video, performance, painting, ceramics, mixed media, sculpture and installation art. These works highlight an acute awareness of the social and psychological complexities of the post-colonial landscape, and offer an intimate examination of the rich and subtle culture of an often misunderstood geography. Through the eyes and minds of contemporary women artists we can experience the Caribbean as a personal, lived reality, as a close encounter between self and place.
