Pacific Standard Time LA/LA2017: Relational Undercurrents – Contemporary Art of the Caribbean Archipelago, Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA), Long Beach, California, USA. Sept 16 2017 – March 28, 2018 Relational Undercurrents: Contemporary Art of the Caribbean Archipelago called attention to a region of the Americas that is difficult to categorize and often overlooked: the island nations of the Caribbean. The exhibition proposed an “archipelagic model”— defining the Caribbean from the perspective of its archipelago of islands, as distinct from the continental experience—to study issues around race, history, the legacy of colonialism, and the environment. The exhibition was divided into four thematic sections: Conceptual Mappings, Perpetual Horizons, Landscape Ecologies and Representational Acts and features artists whose works have informed and shaped those themes. With over eighty artists and occupying the entire museum space, Relational Undercurrents included painting, installation art, sculpture, photography, video, and performance. It was accompanied by a lavishly illustrated catalogue with commissioned essays by scholars and curators. Curated by Dr. Tatiana Flores.
