During the third week of May 2016, she will be curator in residence at Alice Yard, meeting Trinidadian artists and investigating the contemporary art scene and Alice Yard’s network of collaborators. On Thursday 19 May, at 7 pm, she will give an informal talk at Alice Yard about her experience of MoMA’s C-MAP global research programme.

About the Venue: “Since 2008, Alice Yard has run a residency programme hosting artists, curators, and other creative practitioners wishing to visit and work in our space and with our network of collaborators, or to research and experience the contemporary art scene in Port of Spain. We have hosted visitors on stays ranging from a few days to a few months, some focusing on a specific project or work in progress, others more open-ended and exploratory. We have also hosted “local” residencies for Trinidad-based artists requiring temporary working space to explore an idea or complete a project. . . . Alice Yard is at once a physical space, a collaborative network, and an ongoing conversation about contemporary art and creativity in the Caribbean. Based in the backyard of the house at 80 Roberts Street, Woodbrook, Port of Spain, Alice Yard has been a venue for creative experiment since opening in September 2006. We draw on the long tradition of communal 'yard' spaces in urban Trinidad, places of improvisation and exchange.” — Read more: Alice Yard and Alice Yard-Facebook
