This year, Barbados is hosting CARIFESTA XIII.
The Barbados Museum and Historical Society is pleased to present Caribbean Pioneer Artists, a fringe event for CARIFESTA XIII.
This exhibition highlights Caribbean pioneer artists in the Museum and National Cultural Foundation collections, with some works having been donated from artists who exhibited as part of CARIFESTA IV in 1981.
Caribbean Pioneer Artists spans from the 1940s – 1990s, and includes pieces by:
... and other significant artists who helped shape the visual environment of the Caribbean.
Ranging from portraiture, still life and landscape paintings to abstract collages, sculpture and ceramic works, the artistic diversity in the collection reflects the multiplicities of Caribbean identities. This exhibition provides a rare chance to engage with some of the most important visual works in the 20th Century Caribbean canon, and explore the development of creative practice by our pioneer artists.
