BARBADOS ARTS EVENTS

April 2012


Welcome to Barbados Monthly Arts Events April 2012 This is a completely free and unsponsored magazine created out of the need to inform so that we can get to exhibitions, artist talks, workshops and more, rather than hearing about events after they have taken place. I encourage anyone with a creative event or a new piece of work to get in contact with me at corriescott@gmail.com and I will add a free page for you. Let’s get the arts out there! Please, pass this magazine on to others and so help the creative side of Barbados get all the exposure possible. Corrie

RUSSELL WATSON 246 827 4843 russanthonywatson@yahoo.com


RUSSELL WATSON BIOGRAPHY Russell Watson began working in Barbadian theatre in the late 80’s. He studied Theatre in Education at Jamaica’s EMCVPA in the early 90’s and began incorporating digital imaging into his work in the late 90’s as a student at Chicago’s SAIC. In addition to exhibiting, Russell is an educator focusing on theatre, multimedia and photography. He has held positions in diverse settings and across age groups with posts at the UWI, The Studio Museum in Harlem, Derby University, SAIC and various primary and secondary schools across the Caribbean. His debut feature film A HAND FULL OF DIRT won the 2011 ReelWorld Film Festival Audience Award and was nominated for the 2011 Pan African Film Festival Best First Feature Director Award. PROJECT STATEMENT HEAD CASES are a series of photomontage portraits of people of Caribbean ancestry living in the United States. The source materials for the photographs are chosen by the photo subject and gathered from their immediate household. Portraits of the subject and objects are made and then recombined to produce a totemic homage to the commonplace. ARTIST STATEMENT My work explores the persistence of ancestral memory in the decorative and performative modes of the human body. It considers temporality, memory, mysticism and migration as its major themes and is primarily concerned with narrative and figurative representations. In my process I explore synthesis and poly-genre approaches to art making that primarily employ photo, video, text, sculpture and/or performance. 246.827.4843

The Arts Directory Barbados http://issuu.com/corriescott/docs/art_directory_barbados_dec_2011/1


ARTS DIRECTORY BARBADOS How It Happened I have, for so many years, wanted to create a free online reference book where anyone, in any part of the world, may access the creative people in Barbados. I could not do this on my own and Kathy Yearwood heard of my idea, offered to partner with me and I happily agreed. What started out in March as a small book of what I thought might be a maximum of one hundred and fifty pages turned into a tome of over three hundred pages. A mixture of excitement and fear at what we had taken on. And here we are in December 2011 with a book showing off the talents in Barbados. So exciting. The eight month adventure began. Finding artists, photographing them and their work. From March 2011 to October 2011 Kathy and I collated the artwork, the bios and statements and travelled around the island garnering images and information. Large collections of artwork in homes. Convincing people who thought they were too old and forgotten and watching them smile as their work was photographed and having them talk about themselves so that we could create a bio for them. Literally slipping down the hills of clay at Chalky Mount to see an original kiln and spend the day with the potters. Temple Yard with the Rastafarian community where they are blessed with talent, especially carving, and then coming away with gifts of pineapples and avocados. Photographing in the rain with an umbrella in one hand and a camera in the other to get the right angles. Going to openings and craft shows and talking to many. Coming to my home, going to Kathy’s, and going wherever was needed. Meeting the different personalities in so many locations as I photographed many of them for their portrait photo for the book. Remembering some who have left us. A labour of love, learning and fun. The thank you part as I could not have done this on my own. Norma Springer who encouraged me to “take the book and run with it”. Kathy Yearwood who offered to partner with me collating and to create the book for artists in Barbados. Alison Chapman-Andrews for helping Kathy and I proof read. Amazing how much you miss no matter how many times we went over it. Sue Bain for offering her professional opinion and suggestions as a copy editor. Peter Boos for all the encouragement. Laura Lin Hutchinson for her introduction. Finally, the most important people, the creative souls who put their trust in Kathy and I to show them off to their best. I hope we have done this.

'Blooming Roses' by Corrie Scott. This series is from my iphone using the Hipstamatic App with just a 60watt bulb. I decided to exhibit these to show that photography is open to any camera and any interpretation (and any modern app). No corrections of any kind have been made on these images except for re sizing the image to 5" by 5" at 300dpi. It is as it was photographed. Printed with archival inks on acid free paper. Series of 17.

CORRIE SCOTT ‘Caribbean Doors’ Online Catalogue issuu.com/corriescott/docs/caribbean_doors

I love the worn, weathered and much fixed doors, windows and structures. 11” by 14” with a mat that brings it up to 16” by 20” ready for framing.

Out on a limb. “That's where artists do their work. Not in the safe places, but out there, in a place where they might fail, where it might end badly, where connections might be lost, sensibilities might be offended, jokes might not be gotten. If you work with artists, don't saw off the limb. Don't waste a lot of time explaining how dangerous it is, either. No, your job is to quietly support the limb at the same time you egg your team on, pushing them ever further out there.�

BARBADOS COMMUNITY COLLEGE MORNINGSIDE GALLERY

WE WILL SHOW EPISODES 1 AND 2 ON FRIDAY APRIL 13th at 1PM IN THE MORNINGSIDE GALLERY WE WILL SHOW EPISODES 3 AND 4 ON FRIDAY APRIL 20th at 1PM IN THE MORNINGSIDE GALLERY Episode 1: Change This episode features artists who bear witness, through their work, to transformation—cultural, material, and aesthetic—and actively engage communities as collaborators and subjects. Ai Weiwei, El Anatsui, and Catherine Opie are featured. Episode 2: Boundaries This episode presents artists who synthesize disparate aesthetic traditions, present taboo subject matter, discover innovative uses of media, and explore the shape-shifting potential of the human figure. David Altmejd, assume vivid astro focus, Lynda Benglis, and Tabaimo are featured. Episode 3: History In this episode, artists play with historical events, explore and expose commonly held assumptions about historic 'truth', and create narratives based on personal experiences. Marina Abramović, Glenn Ligon, andMary Reid Kelley are featured. Episode 4: Balance Through sculpture, paintings, and installations, the artists in this hour grapple with equilibrium and disequilibrium as they create highly structured works that challenge conventional notions of perception and representation. Rackstraw Downes, Robert Mangold, and Sarah Sze are featured.

There are several factors that make an exhibition of the work of these two artists particularly compelling but perhaps what Frank Bowling and Dennis de Caires most significantly share is a continued commitment to, and love of, the act of painting. Both are graduates of The Royal College of Art in London and have been painting since they left the college’s Painting School; fifty and twenty-five years ago respectively. Bowling and de Caires were born in Guyana (British Guiana as was), the former in Bartica (a small town at the confluence of the Cuyuni and Mazaruni Rivers with the Essequibo River) and the latter in Georgetown (the capital city that sits on the Demerara river). This simple fact has had a defining impact on their lives as artists and their long friendship has been based on their mutual understanding of the dilemma(s) of a move from The New World to The Old and the complex emotional, intellectual and cultural challenges that ensue. They share a passion for the history of painting and that both are keen students of Western European art and its subsequent developments in the Twentieth Century American school. Perhaps more surprising, is their love of British painting (both adore the work of Gainsborough for example) and their view that it is the very exoticism of European colour that has informed their work in the past. The Guyanese writer Wilson Harris is an important touchstone for both painters and a reading of, for example, The Palace Of The Peacock gives insight into the way in which Guyanese explore language itself to gain a stronger grasp of reality in order to better define their experience. It is here paralleled by these two painters who are equally fascinated by, and obsessed with, finding a visual equivalent. It is twenty two years since Frank Bowling and Dennis de Caires showed together in an ambitious exhibition in 1989 at The Umana Yana Centre in Georgetown co-organised by The British Council and The Ministry of Sport and Culture in Guyana. This new exhibition in Wales affords us an opportunity to re-examine and celebrate their work again. Frank Bowling OBE RA (b. 1936) lives and works in London and New York. He was elected an RA in 2005. Forthcoming solo exhibitions include The Poured Paintings 1974-76, Tate Britain from 30 April 2012 to 31 March 2013, Spanierman Modern, New York 29 March to 28 April 2012 and Hales Gallery, London. Dennis de Caires (b.1957) lives and works in London and Barbados. Recent solo exhibitions include Pictures For Georgetown 1986-2009,The National Gallery of Art, Georgetown, Guyana and Recent Paintings, Lancaster House, St.James, Barbados. He is represented by NuEdge Gallery, Barbados and Montreal. Further Information Mark Fleming m.fleming@glyndwr.ac.uk 01978 293306

We aim to connect artists in the diaspora, with artists practicing in the region and continental Caribbean. - To stimulate sharing and creativity by providing an outlet for self expression and uniqueness. - To encourage the sustenance of our intangible and tangible heritages while building a deeper understand of the value and need for the artists work. - To engage with literary and visual arts in a way that reflects the power and dynamic of both traditions.

Our Mission To fuel the development of culture through training, research and the creation of opportunities in cultural industries. The Role of the NCF The NCF’s two major roles are: developmental and commercial. In its developmental role, the Foundation uses culture as a tool for national development fostering and supporting the various art forms and new cultural products. In its commercial role, the Foundation is responsible for the promotion, production and hosting of cultural festivals and associated events that are considered economically viable or socially acceptable. A key part of this function now includes the responsibility for the staging and execution of major governmental and national events. In addition, as culture becomes more pivotal to national and international policy, the National Cultural Foundation continues to re-assess its responsibilities in light of all its functions. FUNCTIONS of the NCF are: To stimulate and facilitate the development of culture generally To develop, maintain and manage theatres and other cultural facilities and equipment provided by Government To organize cultural festivals Assist persons interested in developing cultural expression. OBJECTIVES of the NCF are: To provide opportunities for Barbadian artists/artistes to showcase their talents with the end result being an increased demand for local work To educate Barbadians concerning their heritage To offer Barbadians and visitors alike a high quality product that informs, educates and entertains To equip our cultural workforce with technological skills and training to excel in their particular art forms To strengthen the local cultural product and in the process increase profits to the shareholders To create high quality products that will be competitive on the local, regional and international markets To maximize the role of the cultural sector in the tourism industry Rodney Ifill, Cultural Officer Visual Arts 424-0909 ext.234 rodney-ifill@ncf.bb www.ncf.bb Annette Nias Cultural Officer - Film and Photography 424-0909 Ext 238 annette-nias@ncf.bb

BRIDGETOWN FILM ACADEMY Our mission is to train and/or upgrade the skills of Caribbean people by conducting workshops in the areas of screenwriting, acting for film and television and digital filmmaking. In Barbados and the Caribbean our cultural landscape has evolved and we now sit at the threshold of what is for us a new frontier of cultural expression, the creation of a film industry. In addition, the world is now recognizing the Caribbean as a vast reservoir of untapped talent. In light of developments over the last six years, the Bridgetown Film Academy recognizes that we have reached critical mass in our effort to create a film industry in the Caribbean as a whole. We believe that it’s time for Caribbean people to tell their own stories to the world, and it is widely accepted that a viable film industry is the vehicle through which this shall be achieved. It is imperative therefore that we train persons and build capacity in the relevant areas to meet the demands of our fledgling film industry. In this regard, we believe that the Bridgetown Film Academy is the next logical step in the process. The Bridgetown Film Academy sees itself as fulfilling this role now and into the future. Our workshops are conducted by a team of dedicated individuals who share many years of combined knowledge and practical experience, and who are committed to the process sharing in order to help develop our film industry. www.bridgetownfilmacademy.com/

ROSEMARY PARKINSON www.rosemary-parkinson.com


My website - www.rosemaryparkinson.com in-shop is offering two e-books - Shake Dat Cocktail (a trip around the islands on cocktails) and Cocktails & Hors D' Oeuvres with myself and the late Grand Dame of Caribbean Cuisine Chef Norma Shirley. Both make great presents. Nyam Jamaica is on special for Christmas at US$140 including shipping. Those living in Barbados can order through me direct for BDS$150 signed. In Jamaica, of course, the book is carried by most bookstores. If you are visiting Devon House, Grogg Shop has them and whilst you are there, do enjoy a wonderful lunch or dinner. Norma Shirley's spirit lives on. On NBC's morning show as one of the best picks for 2008/9 as Christmas presents, Nyam Jamaica makes an incredible corporate gift as it is not just a cookbook but a culinary tour that includes history, traditions and culture, meeting the people from parish to parish. It can be used from Primary to University level as an educational book and is in the hands of several international Chefs and, therefore, not only useful for a hotel or restaurant but also for culinary schools/colleges/universities. A collector's item, there are few left and there will be no more hard copies once the original stock of 6,000 copies is finished (see website for details and download for free the sponsorship proposal to learn more). NEWS RE BARBADOS BOOK: The Barbados book - Barbados Bu'n-Bu'n - goes to the designers on January 16th and this is good news especially for me as I believe it is time to put this book to rest from my computer and have the world see it. We are going for GOLD in Paris again. Endorsed by the late Prime Minister of Barbados, David Thompson; by Mia Mottley and the Inter-American Institute for CoOperation in Agriculture - Barbados - with comments from international Chef Art Smith (Oprah's personal Chef), writer/author Barbadian Elombe Mottley (Jamaica), playright/author/artist Trinidadian Lennox Raphael (Denmark) and others, this book is carded to hit the world like a good refreshing storm! On my website you will also find under Downloads, a synopsis for sponsorship for the Barbados book. If you would like to sponsor a double page for say a farmer, just have your corporate office's logo and details within or have an amazing food product or related product (restaurant, hotel) that you wish to go down in the annals of history, please contact me ASAP as I begin to close down this opportunity. This book is also a collector's item, will be going to be judged at the World Cookbook Awards in Paris, and I know will be one that will make Barbados proud and be placed into the annals of history. Naturally it is a big hard-cover visual book and costly to produce, so I am asking to dig deep into your budgets and let me know if there is a bit of sponsorship available. Bless. Do help by sending this information on to any of your contacts. I can be contacted at rosemaryparkinson2004@yahoo.com Have a wonderful, blessed and prosperous rest of the year, Love and light, Rosemary www.rosemary-parkinson.com
