May 31, 2018
Lenfest Center for the Arts, 615 W. 129 St., New York, NY 10027 Wallach Art Gallery, 6th Fl.
The Wallach Art Gallery invites you to the opening reception for Relational Undercurrents: Contemporary Art of the Caribbean Archipelago. This exhibition is curated by Tatiana Flores, Associate Professor of Art History and Latino and Caribbean Studies at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, for the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, California, as part of the The Getty Foundation's Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, an initiative examining the artistic legacy of Latin America and U.S. Latinos through a series of exhibitions and related programs. Relational Undercurrents is the first major survey of twenty-first century art of the Caribbean. It employs the archipelago as an analytical framework, focusing on locating thematic continuities in the art of the Caribbean islands, placing Hispanophone artists in visual conversation with those from Anglophone, Francophone, Dutch, and Danish backgrounds. The reception will take place on Thursday, May 31, 6-8 pm in the Wallach Art Gallery at the Lenfest Center for the Arts.
