Event Description: “Shawn Peters, Nerine Peters and Sherlann Peters have combined their artistic talents in a unique endeavour entitled 'Home is where the Art is.' The idea behind this show is using art to illuminate the plight of those living in broken old houses, which are so often the subject matter of local artists, and hopefully create a conversation. The artists contend that the idea of the “quaint old house” risks romanticising poverty. The exhibition aims to use art to give back to the community as a percentage of the proceeds will be given to the respective homeowners toward maintaining the structures that inspire so many creators. Exhibition opens on Tuesday 24th October 2017 from 7:00pm to 8:30pm. Exhibition continues until Saturday 4th November 2017.

Event Description: “El Museo del Barrio announces the exhibition 'NKAME: A Retrospective of Cuban Printmaker Belkis Ay贸n.' This landmark retrospective is the first in the U.S. dedicated to the work of Belkis Ay贸n (1967–1999) — the late Cuban visual artist who mined the founding myth of the Afro-Cuban fraternal society Abaku谩 to create an independent and powerful visual iconography. Ay贸n was known for her signature technique of collography, a printing process in which materials of various textures and absorbencies are collaged onto a cardboard matrix and then run through the press with paper. Her narratives, many of which were produced at very large scale by joining multiple printed sheets, are imbued with an air of mystery, in part due to her deliberately austere palette of shades and subtle tones of black, white, and grey. For a black Cuban woman, both her ascendency in the contemporary printmaking world and her investigation of a powerful all-male brotherhood were notable and bold. Nkame, a sweeping overview of her most fertile period of artistic creativity, covers Ay贸n’s graphic production from 1986 until her untimely passing. Organized by the Belkis Ay贸n Estate, Havana, Cuba with the UCLA Fowler Museum; Curated by Cristina Vives.”Read more: El Museo del Barrio-Nkame: A Retrospective-Belkis Ay贸n and El Museo del Barrio-Facebook

'This exhibition not only revises the artist’s work, but presents a new imaginary. Duval-Carri茅’s current work creates contemporary echoes of the historical colonial encounter and the construction of the New World, considering its meanings for today.' Anthony Bogues, Curator. Metamorphosis: a complete change of form, structure or substance. The Caribbean was a theatre for historical colonial encounter. This encounter produced new peoples, new religions, new cultures and new economies—a New World. It was a moment of relentless change, altered meanings and adaptations. Central to these adaptations was the production of sugar on plantations which also became scenes of slave rebellions and the Haitian Revolution. Plantations become sites of death and life while creating new taste and desires in the Americas and Europe. How to grapple with the creation, constant unfolding, and afterlives of the colonial encounter, and what these produced within the everyday, has been a preoccupation of many Caribbean artists. Open to the public Admission: $10 Free for MOCA members & NoMi residents ...”Read more: Edouard Duval-Carri茅 - Metamorphosis
About the Artist: “Edouard Duval-Carri茅's themes are many variations on the symbolic and the historic life of the region. His work weaves the aesthetic with the everyday, creating signs that represent a Caribbean Diaspora in motion. He paints and sculpts the Loas of Vodou, showcasing how they migrated from the Caribbean to North America. In these and other works, he is preoccupied with history and the creation of memories without histories, but also with the politics of history and knowledge. His paintings and sculptures explore how the region’s flora and the fauna were intrinsic to the colonial enterprise, and the ways in which our natural environment has itself been transformed into a new problem of our times. Throughout all of Carrie’s work is the drive to create a visual grammar of the region as an experimental colorist and mixed-media artist. In this exhibition are paintings of a slave who transforms himself into various forms of animal life; boats transformed into containers of sugar; disfigured human forms, heads and faces metamorphosing from their symmetrical shape into things unknown; and lighting methods on resin which changes old forms into the new ...” — Read more: Edouard Duval-Carri茅 - Metamorphosis
