This volume brings together a wide range of authors, all of whom were born and/or work in the Caribbean, who were invited to contribute essays which explore the current curatorial drive within the Caribbean. The theme of curatorship is considered in its broadest context, and encompasses many different projects and initiatives aimed at creating a platform for the visual arts, making visual art ‘visible’ by bringing it to a wider audience and broadening the critical discussion around it.

Curating in the Caribbean is edited by David A. Bailey, Alissandra Cummins, Axel Lapp and Allison Thompson, and contains essays by José Manuel Noceda Fernández (Cuba), Claire Tancons (Guadeloupe), Barbara Prézeau Stephenson (Haiti), Sara Hermann (Dominican Republic), Krista A. Thompson (Bahamas), Winston Kellman (Barbados), Jennifer Smit (Curaçao), Dominique Brebion (Martinique) and Veerle Poupeye (Jamaica).

About the Publisher
Like in Marcel Duchamp’s eponymous boîte verte, in which he reproduced his works for a wider audience as an edition, THE GREEN BOX strives to translate works of art into the medium of the book, so that the distinction between the works and their documentation becomes blurred.
