T&T Art Contemporain Gallery presents an exhibition of works by women artists, entitled “Trajectoires” [Trajectories]. The exhibition will be on view from Thursday, May 5 to Saturday May 28, 2011, at T&T Art Contemporain. The gallery, which is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10:00am to 6:00pm (closed on Sunday and Monday) is located at rue Paul-Lacavé (facing the Hôtel de Région) in Point-à-Pitre, Guadeloupe.
There will be a youth workshop with guest of honor Renée Cox on Friday, May 6, at 4:00pm. In addition, a meet-the-artist session will take place on Saturday May 7, in the gardens of the gallery.
Description: Artists include Renée Cox (Jamaica), with Patricia Baffin (Martinique), Tatiana Chaumont (France), Raquel Paiewonsky (Dominican Republic), Lesley Plumey (England), Hélène Valenzuela (France) Géraldine Entiope, Cynthia Phibel, and Marielle Plaisir (all three from Guadeloupe). The artists will contrast their creations, all evincing a tendency to awareness and reflection.
Guest of honor Renée Cox was born in 1960 in Jamaica. She is well-known in the United States for her shocking photos. This photographer uses her body to criticize a world that is too often racist, sexist and conventional and to question the place of women and minorities in today’s society. In 2001, at the Brooklyn Museum in New York, the photographer created controversy by parodying “The Last Supper,” posing completely nude, in place of Christ.
