ARC Magazine has begun its series of events at the new invitational VOLTA NY, which began on March 7 and will continue through Sunday, March 10, 2013. All events will take place at Mercer Street in New York, New York (Booth 2.5282).
The exhibition includes works from Joscelyn Gardner’s “Creole Portraits III” series and new paintings by Elizabeth Colomba, along with a presentation of artists’ monographs by Manuel Mathieu, Patricia Kaersenhout, Anna Ruth Henriquez, David Bade, and Sasha Huber.
Yesterday, at the Talks Lounge at VOLTA NY’s new location, ARC presented Curtailing Anxieties I: Boundaries of defining art in the Caribbean, a roundtable discussion exploring topical concerns around the recent global upsurge that has encapsulated contemporary Caribbean art. Co-moderated by Holly Bynoe, co-founder and editor of ARC Magazine and Charles Campbell, interdisciplinary artist and writer; panelists included Heino Schmid (Popopstudios, The Bahamas) Lisa Howie (Bermuda National Gallery), Michelle Joan Wilkinson (Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture in Baltimore) and Christopher Cozier (artist, writer and co-director of Alice Yard, Trinidad).
