Description: The Art Society of Trinidad and Tobago is hosting a photographic exhibition ‘Record: Art: Memory – Photography in Trinidad and Tobago’ curated by photographer Abigail Hadeed. The exhibition will feature a selection of many previously un-exhibited photographs from a variety of sources tracing the development of Trinidad and Tobago over the last 50 years with a number of images drawn from earlier periods. A carefully selected range of photographs depicting a variety of subjects dating from 1873 to the present day will be on display providing a unique perspective on how our history is recorded and observed in photographic form.
In describing the objectives and goals of the exhibition Hadeed hopes that in the exhibition viewers will be able “to find a reflection of our struggles and achievements as a people; a sense of what we have collectively shared as a young nation.” A catalogue of the exhibition will be on sale together with postcard sets.
