The Queen's Park Gallery and the National Cultural Foundation invite you to their new Exhibition entitled Social Geometry: Expanded Drawing Practices by Barbadian Artists at the newly renovated Queen's Park Gallery in Queen's Park.
This exhibition explores a wider definition of the medium of ‘drawing’ as used by Barbadian artists as a reflection/deflection of their social space. Connections between drawings, objects and varied facets of historical and present-day Barbadian experiences are explored through both traditional and contemporary imagery and media. This approach expands the definition of ‘drawing’ as a practice, and how we can draw literal and figurative lines between works by different generations, their ideologies, and ways of questioning, perceiving and empathizing with our local communities.
This show features work by:
Ras Ishi Butcher
Versia Abeda Harris
The exhibition is laid out in the following five sections, based on the five variables of Social Geometry:
Morphological – The physical interactions
Vertical – The inequalities
Corporate – The organization/integration
Cultural – The freedom of expression
Normative – The extent of control
Guest Curator: Katherine Kennedy - Barbadian artist and writer
