HERE COMES THE SUN

Information on the activity

January 27, 2023 to March 18, 2023

From January 27 to March 18, 2023.

Here Comes the Sun traces the origins of extractive tourism industries through the works of contemporary artists whose practices examine the interconnections between colonial legacies of crop plantations and service economies in the Caribbean. Gesturing towards the Caribbean’s complicated relationship with the tourism industry, Irene de Andres and Katherine Kennedy deliver criticisms of international stakeholders and land developers who stand to benefit from the economic, social, and environmental well-being of the region. Countering the intrusive colonial gaze, Joiri Minaya exposes the fictitious representations of Caribbean nature and women as exotic. And Ada M. Patterson subverts images of crops to offer a lamention on the place of sugar and tourism in the Barbadian cultural imaginary.

- Opening on January 27, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
