Colonial Caribbean Visual Cultures through Contemporary Eyes

Artist Joscelyn Gardner and curator Temi Odumosu consider the afterlives of colonial Caribbean visual culture.

Arts Week 2021 (Birkbeck, University of London) - May 4th, 2021

What ways of seeing do we use when looking back to the colonial Caribbean? This event brings together the Caribbean artist, Joscelyn Gardner and the art historian and curator Temi Odumosu to discuss their shared interest in the afterlives of colonial Caribbean visual culture and its power to expand our understanding of British and Caribbean history. Both have mined the colonial archive – Gardner in her printmaking practice and Odumosu in her exhibitions and scholarship around Africans in English caricature from the late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century.

The conversation can be viewed here:
