Borderless Caribbean: Liquid Knowledges

Overview

Show Full Overview Hide Full Overview

The Art Basel exhibit presented by the Haitian Cultural Arts Alliance, Borderless Caribbean: Liquid Knowledges, returns this year with three dynamic components.

LIQUID KNOWLEDGES
Liquid Knowledges will examine the the contributions of Africans to the ethno-botany of the new world as well as the ideas of the enslaved populations of the Americas. It will present the “garden” in history as a focus on the legacies of continental Africa — the way in which ways of knowing, thinking and of living were adapted and reformulated in the creation of the complex world of Caribbean Cultures and those of the continental Americas. A team from Brown University consisting of Dr. Anthony Bogues, Director of the Center for Slavery and Justice, and Dr. Geri Augusto of the Department of Africana Studies will contribute to the visual and historical content.

GARDEN OF MYSTERIES AND BOTANY OF MEMORY AND EXPERIENCE
The Garden of Mysteries and Botany of Memory and Experience features the work of contemporary artists from the Caribbean in dialogue with Miami-based artists.

ANTILLEAN LACUNAE: A LITANY OF THE BOTANICAL
Antillean Lacunae: A Litany of the Botanical offers a multi-sensory experience through visual exploration that examines the relations between the colloquial and commercial uses of botanicals. The multimedia exhibition, Antillean Lacunae, focuses on the concept of ethnobotany in both the colonial and contemporary Caribbean region as a source of inspiration and creativity.

This exhibit will be featured in the LHCC Art Gallery as well as in the neighboring Haitian Cultural Arts Alliance exhibition space.

VISIONARY APONTE

11 05 19 / 12 01 19
GALERIA ORIENTE – PARQUE DE CESPEDES, SANTIAGO DE CUBA

Visionary Aponte: Art and Black Freedom takes as its point of departure an extraordinary—and now lost—historical artifact: a so-called “Book of Paintings.” Its creator was José Antonio Aponte, a free black carpenter, artist,and former soldier who was also the leader of an ambitious antislavery conspiracy in Cuba in 1812. During his trial, Aponte was forced to provide testimony describing each of the pictures in his book. They portrayed a wide array of subject matter, from Biblical scenes to landscapes to…
