This Friday at VOLTA: NYC check out ARC Magazine’s “Curtailing Anxieties I: Boundaries of defining art in the Caribbean,” a roundtable discussion exploring topical concerns around the recent global upsurge that has encapsulated contemporary Caribbean art.
IMAGE: ARC will be supporting and displaying several monographs at booth 2.52 including Patricia Kaersenhout’s ‘Invisible Man’. This special project was inspired by Ralph Ellison’s novel, as the artist set out in search of the invisible men in her life. Kaersenhout opens doors and bangs them shut again. And sometimes, when for a brief moment she seems to be standing face to face with her invisible man, he looks straight through her. On the pages of an old biology book, with its illustrations of intestines, skin structure, hair, the digestive system, and so on, she tries to visualize the invisible; from spirit to flesh.
