Hidden Histories – Contemporary Art in the Caribbean

24 July 2014 | 6.30pm – 8pm

Battersea, Gorvy Lecture Theatre

Free but booking required.

The contemporary art landscape of the English-speaking Caribbean is not sufficiently well known; for an opportunity to hear from an artist whose work addresses local histories while engaging with the global, please join us for a conversation between Trinidad-based artist Christopher Cozier and art historian Courtney J. Martin. A recipient of a 2013 Prince Claus Laureate, Cozier has developed a distinctive multi-disciplinary artistic career. As co- director of the long-standing collaborative project space Alice Yard, he also tirelessly champions the breadth and diversity of art made in the Caribbean. Courtney Martin will talk to Christopher Cozier about his wide-ranging work and practice.
