Welcome to Barbados Monthly Arts Events This is a completely free 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 visual arts event 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

GALLERY OF CARIBBEAN ART Russell Watson and Chris Welch exhibition 'Decoherence' at The Gallery of Caribbean Art. Opening reception Sunday January 13th, 5pm - 8pm. Exhibition closes February 6th. New media art refers to artworks created with new media technologies, including digital art, algorithmic art, generative art, computer animation, virtual reality art, Internet art, interactive art, video games, robotics, 3D printing and artificial intelligence. New media art often involves interaction between artist and observer or between observers and the artwork, which responds to them and does not appear as a set of homogeneous practices, but as a complex field converging around three main elements: 1) the art system, 2) scientific and industrial research, and 3) political-cultural media activism. A pervasive theme in works produced in new media is non-linearity, which is primarily oriented at disrupting normal modes of perceiving art. New media art is a dynamic field of the arts that offers never before available tools for artistic expression and is at the frontier of contemporary art.

Arrivants: Ewan Atkinson from blog and curator Verle Poopeye https://arrivantsexhibition.wordpress.com/2018/11/11/arrivants-ewan-atkinson/

Peregrination, A Playable Reproduction (2018) Game components: digital reproductions of the game board and five game pieces, five wooden stands, a pair of dice, ninety-one buttons as counters. From the players’ pockets: a wooden shoe, a Vape mat, a dried passion fruit, a peanut-candy wrapper, the key from a can of corned beef, a plastic toy, and a commemorative pin. Ewan Atkinson was born in Barbados, in 1975, and is based there. He graduated with a BFA from The Atlanta College of Art, in Atlanta, Georgia, USA (1998) and an MA in Cultural Studies, University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, Barbados (2014). Apart from solo and group exhibitions in Barbados, Atkinson has shown in international exhibitions including; Infinite Island, Brooklyn Museum, NYC (2007); The Caribbean Pavilion (Liverpool Biennial 2010); The 12th Havana Biennial (2015); Caribbean Queer Visualities, Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast, Northern Ireland (2016); and most recently Relational Undercurrents: Contemporary Art of the Caribbean Archipelago (2017-18). Atkinson is currently the coordinator of the Studio Art BFA programme at the Barbados Community College and co-founder of Punch Creative Arena, an artist led curatorial initiative.


Artist’s Statement The Neighbourhood Project investigates the development of persona and character within the social boundaries that might define or confine a community. Using The Neighbourhood and its inhabitants as objects of study, I examine the production of meaning and how it might create or hinder an individual’s sense of self. For over a decade I have been studying artifacts from The Neighbourhood. Peregrination, a board game reproduced and presented “in play” for Arrivants, is a very recent discovery. Seemingly intended as educational entertainment (much like early European and North American 17th or 18th century games), promising advice on how new residents might acclimate to this community and eventually attain acceptance and “prosperity”. This important find has cast some doubt on many of my earlier suppositions about the history of technological and social development in The Neighbourhood. The era suggested by the apparent age of the game is in conflict with much of it’s content. I am left to wonder if time might operate differently in The Neighbourhood. Was it indeed created by the “much respected” Nelson Brothers? Are they ageless? It is a puzzling conundrum. My attempts to play the game have been futile. In fact, the game may be entirely “un-winnable”. The game may have been produced as part of some elaborate ruse. More research is required. Ewan Atkinson

ADAM PATTERSON Adam Patterson: Sailors Sunday 6 January, 2019, 7 pm. at Alice Yard, Trinidad

At the end of a brief residency at Alice Yard in early January 2019, on Sunday 6 January artist Adam Patterson will present a semi-extemporised performance in collaboration with writer Andre Bagoo and others. Incorporating elements of Trinidad’s sailor mas and Barbados’s traditional Landship performance, and responding to the work of American writer Langston Hughes and British artist Isaac Julien’s film Looking for Langston, Sailors is an exploration of desire and distance, pleasure and disappointment, secrets and surprise, in the form of “a cruise of poetic correspondence … queering sailors and horizons.” All are invited, and audience members are encouraged to bring or wear any item of traditional sailor costume or paraphernalia. https://aliceyard.blogspot.com/2018/12/adam-patterson-sailors.html


About the artist: Adam Patterson is a Barbadian visual artist and writer currently based in Barbados, Rotterdam, and London. He completed his BA (Hons) Fine Art at Central Saint Martins in 2017. Concerned with how stories, images, and gazing affect the emergence of selfhood and self-determinacy, his work involves telling new stories or rethinking old stories in new recuperative ways. Andre Bagoo is a Trinidadian poet, the author of Trick Vessels (2012), BURN (2015, longlisted for the OCM Bocas Prize for Caribbean Literature), Pitch Lake (2017), and The City of Dreadful Night (2018).

Alice yard Alice Yard is the backyard space of the house at 80 Roberts Street, Woodbrook, Port of Spain. This was once the house of Sean Leonard’s great-grandmother. Four generations of children played and imagined in this yard, and now we continue this tradition. Alice Yard is a space for creative experiment, collaboration, and improvisation. Alice Yard is administered and curated by architect Sean Leonard, artist Christopher Cozier, and writer and editor Nicholas Laughlin, with the help of a growing network of creative collaborators. Read more about us here. Alice Yard is a non-profit organisation incorporated under the laws of Trinidad and Tobago. Since 2008, Alice Yard has run a residency programme hosting artists, curators, and other creative practitioners. Find out more here.

An expression of history through ‘Other Lives Way beyond the purist discussion of technique, texture, theme and talent there is a conversation, a moment of reflection and a lesson in the exploration of self that is how Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the National Cultural Foundation (NCF), Mrs. Carol Roberts-Reifer described the effect of Other Lives on those who will walk through the doors of the exhibition. There is a visceral connection to the artist, the work, its intent and impact on the viewing audience, she added. Other Lives, is an exhibition of work by Nick Whittle, opened at the Queen’s Park Gallery last Sunday, January 13, 2019.

Chief Executive Officer of the National Cultural Foundation, Carol Roberts-Reifer (l) and Ambassador of the Argentine Republic to Barbados, Gustavo Pandiani (c) in conversation with the artist Nick Whittle about the piece Ancestors (2017)

Mrs. Roberts-Reifer expressed honour and delight at being invited to deliver the feature address at this opening event, not simply because of her role as CEO but as an ardent but quiet fan of art and as someone who has a vast collection of Whittle works. “I am generally fascinated by those who possess talent so great and deep and accomplished that they get to express themselves in their chosen art form. Visual artists, dancers, musicians – all artists, artistes and artisans really – I envy them silently – the closest I’ve come to playing anything is playing the radio…,” Roberts-Reifer quipped.

Alberta Whittle reading the Kamau Brathwaite tribute

Nick is skilled at making us pause and think and sometimes even feel a bit uncomfortable or on edge through his work, because he has dared to express himself, he has dared to take on a topic and say, state, express, what we wish we had the fearlessness to do. His latest exhibition, the CEO added, fell perfectly into the schematic of his previous showings. History meets a perennial hot topic, meets passion and emotion, meets a jolt to the senses and intellect, all soothed by the generosity of the host – the artist.


The history of slavery is carefully laid bare before us in ‘Other Lives’ through a series of poignant yet stark juxtapositions: pain and prosperity; peril and purpose; black and white; confinement and space; our past and our present; trauma and triumph – it is all movingly captured in the gallery space. In her address, NCF CEO Roberts-Reifer walked those in attendance through a few of the dominant, probing themes in the exhibition that challenged her to take a look at our story, the bitter topic of slavery and like her, to envision a soothing of the soul and the promise of peace. Four Women at Three Houses Spring (for Edna), piece created by Nick for his mother-in-law seen taking a close look at the final masterpiece

She invited the audience and those coming to view the exhibition over the next few weeks, to insert their own thoughts and interpretations expressed in the form of questions, and to commit to finding their own answers as they engage with the themes and truths in the Exhibition – Other Lives. To view it just as art for art’s sake or for purely aesthetic pleasure is to do the artist and you, his audience, a great disservice, the CEO concluded. Nick Whittle is the recipient of the Prime Minister’s Award for most Original Work, NIFCA 2018. He is a Caribbean Master, CARIFESTA XIII Barbados 2017; he was awarded a Frank Collymore Literary Award for poetry and is co-author of ‘Art in Barbados: What Kind of Mirror Image.’ Nick was also a member of the National Art Gallery Committee between 1998 and 2008, the former Head of Fine Arts at Queen’s College and past President of the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union.

Evidence (2018) is a provocation into understanding the historical and ongoing ramifications of gender-based violence

The Exhibition – Other Lives, is open until February 28th at the Queen’s Park Gallery from Tuesday to Saturday between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. http://www.ncf.bb/other-lives/

FRESH MILK Thank you for your continued support of Fresh Milk. We recognise that the creative landscape across Barbados and the Caribbean has transformed in recent years, bringing with it new opportunities, challenges and developments. We have decided to take 2019 to review our programming to consider how best we can serve the local, regional and international contemporary arts community in the future. We wish to remain as relevant and as constructive as we have been over the past seven years. Fresh Milk remains open to potential partnerships while maintaining its commitment to Caribbean Linked, Tilting Axis and Transoceanic Visual Exchange. We are considering a reduced number of residencies per year, with a dedicated concentration on the Colleen Lewis Reading Room as a critical resource for the residency programme. For now, we invite you to reflect on 2018 with us in our annual year in review newsletter. https://mailchi.mp/fe1802ac7a67/fresh-milks-2018-in-review

Moving. Standing still. Swaying. Heading home. Eyes locked firm onto the stars. Heart so soft it's bound to give a loving sigh. Mind sharp as a well used pencil. Will that I do the 'right thing' always, regardless of cost or inconvenience. Sailor of the Cosmic Sea, wanderer, mystic, poet and explorer....... No boundary safe before me, no vanguard beyond my salty humble reach. I've journeyed thousands of lives and millions of miles... way before I was last born. I remember Heaven like it's the place just next door. I cradled fears but let them fall. I nourished hopes but let them starve. I found contentment on the nearest of shores. Moving. Standing still. The tide comes in... but the ocean remains. And I, after all these lives, do the same and remain the same. Just foam on a wave............. Michael Miller (2015)

RICHARD DAISLEY In the year 2004 I was introduced to the art of lamp working a form of glass blowing. Fascinated by the uses of a torch to bring glass to a molten state where it can then be blown and shaped with tools and hand movements, I knew then this was my passion and I fell in love with this ancient art form instantaneously. In the first year of dedicating my life to this newly found love, I realised this relationship was not going to be easy, and so I found myself at the verge of a break up. However I needed this to work and I made up in my mind to wade thru these rough waters and overcome all obstacles in which I would encounter as time passed by. I learned to appreciate this medium called Glass. I became one with it, expressing my feelings in each piece I crafted. Expressions of the heart, mind, body and soul. Feelings of happiness, sorrow, pain, pleasure, hatred and love filled each work of art as they told their own stories and I told mine. With every heated kiss from the flame upon my skin, the fire reminded me not to take it for granted. For respect was due and I often felt its wrath, when I didn't take heed. Leaving behind scars as a constant reminder. Guess its true what the old folks used too say. Play with fire, you will get burnt. As the years went by one after the other I matured not only as an artist but as an individual. For while I was molding the glass it to was molding me. Though still young in my career as an artist I aspire someday for my name to be written and remembered in histories pages, amongst the greatest artists the world has ever seen. I often look back at where I started and where I am now. I have come a might long way and I must give thanks. Thanks first and foremost to the Almighty Father, for without him who and where would I be? The Father gave me life, health, a creative mind and the ability to make my dreams come true. I was also given a strong support system. My family, friends, love ones, patrons and yes even the critics. You all played an important role in this journey of my life and for that I say thank you, from the depth of my heart.

JILL WALKER BOOK Up the Islands Memories of the West Indies Artist Jill Walker is well known for her paintings of Barbados, but her new book ‘Up the Islands’, shows her remarkable collection from the diverse islands of the West Indies. Together with photographs taken by her husband Jimmy and excerpts from his weekly letters to his mother in Scotland in the 1950s, this book follows the travels of a young couple through the islands in a simpler time. The book has been compiled by Jill’s daughter, Sue Trew and will be available at all five of the Best of Barbados Gift Shops in November. The islands appear in alphabetical order in the 162 page book. Here are a few pages so you can have a sneak preview! For further information contact Sue susantrew@best-of-barbados.com
