Bundlehouse: Because after the fracture came something like paradise
Mixed media and found object sculpture on canvas
On View at Peréz Art Museum Miami as part of The Other Side of Now: Foresight in Contemporary Caribbean Art; a thematic group exhibition centered on the question, “what might a Caribbean future look like?” With a series of newly commissioned works, The Other Side of Now seeks to think beyond narratives of catastrophe that continue to frame the region in terms of then and now. In this exhibition, the region is conceptualized as both a complex spatial configuration and a temporal formation, engaging diasporic voices alongside artists living in the insular Caribbean. The Other Side of Now features 14 artists who engage future time through personal experiences, collective memories, and historical legacies. In paintings, installation, videos, and sculptures, these artists illuminate ideas of survival, community, self-acceptance, environmental rights and creative resourcefulness as central to the challenge of imaging trajectories for the Caribbean. The Other Side of Now is a curatorial initiative comprising an exhibition and publication. This project is curated by María Elena Ortiz, Associate Curator at Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), and Dr. Marsha Pearce, Cultural Studies Scholar based at The University of the West Indies St. Augustine Campus.
