Artist: John Beadle
CARIBBEAN PAVILION: THE BAHAMAS, BARBADOS, MARTINIQUE
Curated by David A. Bailey
"How are we to write the histories of non-western societies in relation to modernity?" In his groundbreaking essay "Modernity and Its Others: Three 'Moments' In The Post-war History of the Black Diaspora Arts", Stuart Hall re-visits modernity through three historical art movements (the 'last colonials', the 'post-colonials' and the contemporary) from the perspective of the Diaspora.
This discourse was used as the basis of the invitation to 11 artists of three Caribbean countries; the Bahamas, Martinique and Barbados to come to Liverpool and make new work under the City States theme.
Artists: Blue Curry (Bahamas), Ewan Atkinson (Barbados), Ishi Butcher, (Barbados), Akyem Ramsay, (Barbados), David Damoison, (Martinique), Christian Bertin, (Martinique), Kendra Frorup (Bahamas), Heino Schmid (Bahamas), John Beadle (Bahamas), Lynn Parotti (Bahamas), Lavar Munroe (Bahamas).
