WATCH ARTIST VIDEO INTERVIEW

Participating artists for Caribbean Linked VI include Vesuhely Americaan (Curaçao), Claudio Arnell (Saint Martin), Taisha Carrington (Barbados), Romelinda Maldonado (Aruba), Justin Reinir Croes (Aruba/The Netherlands), John Reno Jackson (Cayman Islands), Sarabel Santos-Negrón (Puerto Rico), Samuel Sarmiento (Aruba/Venezuela) and Béliza Troupé (Guadeloupe).

This residency will allow the participants to be exposed to the practices of other emerging Caribbean artists, providing an opportunity to strengthen regional connections and cultural understanding. This in-person edition of Caribbean Linked follows the virtual edition that took place online in 2021 due to disruption from the COVID-19 pandemic, which acted a bridging year for some of the participants to connect with one another and have discussions about their work before meeting physically in July/August 2022.

The writer in residence will be Ethan Knowles, an emerging scholar and writer from The Bahamas who recently graduated from The American University of Rome, Italy. This year’s specially invited curator will be Sofía Olascoaga, an academic curator at MUAC (Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo – UNAM) in Mexico City, where she coordinates Campus Expandido an academic programme of critical theory.
