Curated by Bettina Pérez Martínez, “Seascape Poetics” is a virtual exhibition that examines the complexity of Caribbean relationships to water. Featuring six contemporary Caribbean artists – Lionel Cruet, Nadia Huggins, Deborah Jack, Olivia Mc Gilchrist, Jeffrey Meris, and Joiri Minaya – and drawing on the work of Caribbean scholars and theorists, the exhibition considers connections between water and regional colonial histories, rapidly accelerating climate change and fluid archipelagic identities. 

“Seascape Poetics” was developed through the Beyond Museum Walls Curatorial Residency program at the Curating and Public Scholarship Lab (CaPSL) and has been converted to a digital format in response to COVID-19. The exhibition will dive deeper into related themes through a five-episode podcast and a series of live + recorded Zoom events, featuring conversations between Caribbean curators, artists, and scholars.
