This is just a reminder that the exhibition “Circles and Circuits I: Contemporary Chinese Caribbean Art” is still on view for about a month, until February 25, 2018 at the California African American Museum (CAAM) [see previous post “Circles and Circuits I: Contemporary Chinese Caribbean Art”]. The CAAM is located at 600 State Drive, Exposition Park, Los Angeles, California.
Description: “Circles and Circuits I” explores the art of the Chinese Caribbean diaspora from the early 20th century to the present day. By examining the contributions of artists of Chinese descent in Cuba, Panama, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, and beyond, the exhibition will reveal the hidden complexities of the transcultural art of the Caribbean. The presentation at CAAM will trace the history of Chinese Caribbean art from the 1930s through the period of the region’s independence movements, showcasing the contributions of artists little known outside their own countries.
