The Fresh Milk team recently shared its 2018 Year in Review. Here is their introduction (below). Go to Fresh Milk to see the complete newsletter. It includes news about Bajan actor and director Levi King and his work with Matthew Kupakwashe Murrell’s play Pretty Daughta; artists such as Ronald Williams, Daisy Diamond, as well as curators Natalie Willis (National Gallery of The Bahamas) and Marina Reyes Franco (Puerto Rico); and the untimely passing of writer, journalist, and filmmaker Alanna Lockward. The newsletter also highlights the many projects and collaborations it has sustained: exhibitions, panel discussions, conferences, screenings, residencies, fellowships, and more.
We recognise that the creative landscape across Barbados and the Caribbean has transformed in recent years, bringing with it new opportunities, challenges and developments. We have decided to take 2019 to review our programming to consider how best we can serve the local, regional and international contemporary arts community in the future. We wish to remain as relevant and as constructive as we have been over the past seven years.
Fresh Milk remains open to potential partnerships while maintaining its commitment to Caribbean Linked, Tilting Axis and Transoceanic Visual Exchange. We are considering a reduced number of residencies per year, with a dedicated concentration on the Colleen Lewis Reading Room as a critical resource for the residency programme.
For now, we invite you to reflect on 2018 with us in our annual year in review newsletter. [. . .]
