T he Pérez Art Museum, Miami is looking ahead to an uncertain future in a thematic group show. Entitled The Other Side of Now: Foresight in Contemporary Caribbean Art, the exhibition will showcase works by 14 contemporary artists from the region and its diaspora, grappling with the task of re-visualising and making tangible new images of the region’s future.
Through a variety of different media, their work will interrogate and imagine times to come in the Caribbean, looking beyond the catastrophic tropes and traumatic history that often color its image, and offering up alternative perceptions. The artists will face the challenge of innovatively demonstrating a Caribbean ‘present-future’, designed and devised on their own terms.
The Other Side of Now: Foresight in Contemporary Caribbean Art will be on view at the Pérez Art Museum from 18 July 2019–7 June 2020.
