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 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


Alberta Whittle solo exhibition 'Business as Usual‘ at Tyburn Gallery. Scotland. 30th May -27th July 2019. The 2018/19 winner of the Margaret Tait Award, Whittle is a filmmaker and visual artist who works between Barbados, Scotland and South Africa. Tyburn Gallery is pleased to present Business As Usual, a solo exhibition by Alberta Whittle. A multi-faceted artist whose practice includes film, performance, and various forms of collage and assemblage, Whittle is known for work which uses the body as a site of potential for transformation and resistance. Creating space to acknowledge the effects of history on the present, she envisions new models for the future, drawing on science fiction, decolonial knowledge, and the power of vulnerability. For this exhibition, the artist has conceived a series of large-scale digital collages which bring together elements of photography and painting, using performative self-portraiture to depict re-imagined histories and radical futures. She uses collage to reveal the mutability of narratives and encourage multiple ways of knowing. Accommodating various perspectives, images and texts, this practice allows her to disturb the constructed notion of a singular, objective history, and shed light on a wealth of stories and experiences which have been overlooked. These images show manifold alternative possibilities, overflowing in rich kaleidoscopic symmetry. Alberta Whittle was born in 1980 in Barbados, and currently works between Barbados, Scotland and South Africa. She was awarded her MFA from Edinburgh College of Art in 2011, after having completed her BA in Fine Arts at the Glasgow School of Art. She is currently a research associate at the University of Johannesburg. The artist’s work spans film, sculpture, performance, photography, and digital collage, often incorporating multiple elements to create interactive installations. Rooted in the experiences of diaspora, her practice harnesses the values of radical self-love and collective care, using public and private spaces to confront colonial history and start important conversations about healing and reparations.

Whittle was a RAW Academie Fellow at RAW Material in Dakar in 2018, and the Margaret Tait Award winner for 2018/9. As part of the latter, she presented work in the exhibition Stalking the Image: Margaret Tait and Her Legacy at GoMA, Glasgow, UK. In 2019, she was nominated for the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award. She has participated in residencies including Associate Art Residency, GOMA, Glasgow, UK (2019); Creative Lab, CCA, Glasgow, UK (2018); the The Bag Factory, Johannesburg, South Africa (2014). In 2019, the artist will also mount a solo exhibition at Dundee Contemporary Arts (DCA) titled How flexible can we make the mouth.

BAJAN PRIDE (to be sung to a traditional calypso melody) Mia put them all outta their seats they suffer a record election defeat now they outside the parliament gate waiting to see what is their fate. Freundel Stuart lost for words All he saying is, “What the bird!” Donville Inniss gone to Miami he didn’t know the FBI looking for he Mia should have known when she smell a rat that is was time to bring back the cat. (Chorus) Is there any hope for we? we have plenty pride but no industry. They sell the sun the sand and the sea and we lose we integrity. First thing in she diary, “We better fix the economy.” So she gone to the central bank and find Delisle Worrell empty the tank. She see there was no money left so she say, “We better go to the I.M.F.” Mia say “Tough days ahead.” And people pulling money from under the bed they out there selling on the road and leaving their cars to sit at home.

(Chorus) Is there any hope for we? we have plenty pride but no industry. They sell the sun the sand and the sea and we lose we integrity. Mia say we all should plant a tree then there would be food for all-uh-we. One man raise some chickens to sell another plant some seasoning out by the well. we can live with the birds and bees eat coconut and drink bush tea. The preacher say, “The end is nigh! We all go to heaven up in the sky!” I give you my opinion for what it’s worth better work hard for what’s here on earth. (Chorus) Is there any hope for we? we have plenty pride but no industry. They sell the sun the sand and the sea and we lose we integrity. The young girls they catching their tails no more Remy or fancy nails.

We have plenty pride but no industry So we gonna lose we integrity We sell out to Massy and Ansel Mccall So we working for Trini dollar or not at all

(Chorus) Is there any hope for we? we have plenty pride but no industry. They sell the sun the sand and the sea and we lose we integrity. All the ills of society we want government to fix for we when we should be looking to fix it ourselves ’cause the politicians will lead us to hell. Remember your grandmother tell you how when you don’t have a horse you ride a cow. We don’t have to look too far we got industry in we own back yard. (Chorus) Is there any hope for we? we have plenty pride but no industry. They sell the sun the sand and the sea and we lose we integrity.

WALTER BAILEY November 2018

Barbadian artist Adam Patterson's solo exhibition 'Things You Threw In The Gully'! in Rotterdam.

And the workshop ‘Maypole Braiding’ runs in relation to “Things You Threw in the Gully,” at Roodkapje Rotterdam. "How can maypole braiding enable us to think about the joys and pains of living together, the entanglements in which we find ourselves or the task of staying with the trouble? Weaving through readings of Donna Haraway, Audre Lorde and Rihanna, grab a ribbon and dance your way to surprising constellations, patterns and worlds. The maypole may offer a fruitful means of rethinking how we live and work together while emphasising the potentials of derangement, messiness and entanglement. The play of braiding and unbraiding, making and unmaking, hopes to encourage a greater openness and vulnerability to working through tricky, slippery and troublesome things.” • Adam Patterson • Adam Patterson is an artist and writer, currently one of the arists in residence of the Hamburger Community of Art. Adam investigates the processes of how stories, images and conditions of being gazed at affect the emergence of one’s selfhood, self-determinacy and right to opacity. He developed a practice of telling new stories or rethinking old stories in new recuperative ways, working across a variety of media including mask-making and masquerade, video, critical writing, poetry and performance. • Hamburger Community of Art • The Hamburger Community of Art (HCA) is a yearlong development program for emerging artists based on the principles of experimentation, collaboration and developing new artistic practices. What can artists learn from each other? How can (young) artists stimulate their development collectively? What can society learn from artists and vice versa?

Opening reception of the visual art exhibition 'Social Geometry: Expanded Drawing Practices by Barbadian Artists', Sunday May 5th, 2019, 6:30pm-8:30pm. Exhibition ends Saturday, June 15th, 2019. Presented by the National Cultural Foundation - Barbados (NCF) and Queen’s Park Gallery (QPG) See more here: This show is guest curated by Barbadian artist and writer Katherine Kennedy, and features work by Simone Asia, Ewan Atkinson, Theresa Bailey, Ras Ishi Butcher, Alison Sealy-Smith, Adrian Compton, Annalee Davis, Henry Fraser, Mark Gajadhar, Versia Abeda Harris, Mark King, Rosemary Pilgrim, Kia Redman, Akilah Watts, Chris Welch and Kraig Yearwood. In sociology, the term ‘social geometry’ is a theoretical strategy which uses a multi-dimensional model to unpack and understand societal behaviours. Paired with the mathematical meaning of geometry as the properties and mapped relationships between points, lines, surfaces and even solids, Social Geometry: Expanded Drawing Practices as an exhibition explores a wider definition of the medium of ‘drawing’ as used by Barbadian artists as a reflection/deflection of their social space. Connections between drawings, objects and varied facets of historical and present-day Barbadian experiences are explored through both traditional and contemporary imagery and media. This multifarious approach expands the boundaries around what ‘drawing’ can mean as a practice, and how we can draw literal and figurative lines between works by different generations, their ideologies, and ways of questioning, perceiving and empathizing with our local communities. This exhibition proposes to be laid out in the following five sections, based on the five variables of Social Geometry: Morphological – The physical interactions Vertical – The inequalities Corporate – The organization/integration Cultural – The freedom of expression Normative – The extent of control Social Geometry: Expanded Drawing Practices engages with this model to interrogate, agree with or defy these variables, reflecting through multiple processes of drawing, the complexity of Bajan society. For more information, call 427-2345/429-3117 or email Gallery hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 10:00am – 6:00pm Images used in this magazine were taken from the Catalogue created by curator Katherine Kennedy.

BARBADOS PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY The Barbados Photographic Society (BPS) is founded on an appreciation for and interest in photography. Website Our Facebook Group is open to everyone with an interest in photography! You are welcome to join, share your thoughts on photography, post your work, follow the work of our members and participate in our discussions

BARBADOS PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY May theme was "Fine Art Photography is photography created in accordance with the vision of the artist as a photographer. The goal is to express an idea, a message, or an emotion.“ "this is an example of what happens when you just leave all conventional rules behind and let creativity take you to an endpoint that you like. The result may not be everyone's cup of tea, but what matters most is that you are happy with what you have created." Hugh Walker











‘Six Degrees’. Studio Art BFA Portfolio 2019. May 8th - May 17th at Morningside Gallery, Barbados Community College.

it feels uncanny when recognising that in Dutch, "May I?" may be haphazardly translated to "Mag ik?" or magik / magic, given the turbulent, disarming and immobilising times in which we find ourselves, where magic seems like a logical consequence (given that nothing else seems to work). When asking, "May I?" or "Mag ik?", this may be read as a question or consideration of alternative expressions of possibility. Am I possible, is it / this / that possible, is possibility even viable or available? And if displacing the question mark, conjuring a performative statement or declaration, a prediction or prophecy is made: I may, ik mag, where possibility is indeed expressed and this consequence (magic) becomes performed and embodied in language. It wears a defiant, transgressive and supernatural tone, being response-able in the face of a world which generates and conditions ir-response-ability and incapacity as normative. And magic, in this sense, is not a hocus pocus kind of trickery conjured from nothingness but, rather, a keen sensitivity to the contingencies of the systems in which we are entangled and subjected. To cast spells in the vocabulary of such systems, then, is to rely on the results we have witnessed and experienced firsthand of its contingencies, feeling how these move, act and re-act, so as to input our own forces and wills into these channels (like ingredients in a cauldron), in the prediction, not of a future but, of something - anything - else. Where the cauldron, from its prior systemic form - a pot of hot water to which we are condemned to be boiled alive - is re-imagined as a cauldron of magic / alternative expressible possibilities, we MAY, indeed. Adam Patterson

A Bajan Cultural Showcase Article by George Alleyne Published on March 28, 2019 In a chilly room of the Central Bank of Barbados’ Exchange Centre, one can be greeted by cultural characters of Barbados resplendent in the Caribbean’s warm colours, ranging from a classical masquerade get-up to a bubbling Mother Sally. For some viewers, the heat under the collar may increase as their eyes behold an array of the quintessential female Bajan derriere, offered up in views bound to tantalise the imagination while at the same time reminding one of the expansive freedoms of Caribbean lifestyle.

Sensuality is further pronounced in the candle-lit setting where a gentleman brandishes a less than gentlemanly countenance as he administers a bush bath to a pleasured female. Then there is the unmistakable portrait of the Master Blaster, a star among those who brought pride to the region as a collective, followed by booklets of cartoons of social commentary that once came to life in a Barbados newspaper. Such an exhibit covering the intertwined disciplines of artistic presentation on paper and canvas can belong to a few people, and one of them has to be artist, cartoonist, songwriter, and costume designer, the late Winston Jordan. The selected works of Jordan, who passed away in 2007, have been on display since the beginning of this month and will continue to be until April 4. It is part of the Annual Caribbean Fine Art Fair (CaFA). A gallery was set up for other Barbadian and regional artistes for five days, ending March 10, in the Courtney Blackman Grand Salle. But unlike that brief art show, Jordan’s work was given a month showcase, reflective of the lasting impact he made on Barbadian cultural life. CaFA director Anderson Pilgrim said the exhibition is not just about celebrating Jordan’s legacy “but it looks at what he has contributed overall to the various areas that he operated in – commercial art, visual art, festival art”. “He was one of the people who drove Crop Over,” the organiser said, hurrying on to make clear that the culturally imbued designs and promotions of Jordan in Crop Over are “well, not exactly what it has become today”. “He didn’t particularly like the direction Crop Over was going – the skin and feathers thing. He wanted us to portray our culture and to delve into history.” Pilgrim reflected that his attention was first drawn to Jordan as a cartoonist at the Nation Newspaper in the 70s. “It was a revelation to see Barbadian culture reflected in cartoons when all the cartoons that I knew of were done overseas. Winston captured the Barbadian essence.” Speaking of “a wonderful selection of art work that he left us”, Pilgrim added: “I believe that the national collection needs to have some of his works. He is a national icon and we need to remember him.” Within the annex to the Central Bank lay pieces of work ranging from creations done by pen, to crayon to acrylic, on which Barbadians could judge whether the images that capture aspects of Barbadian culture should be preserved for posterity as part of the island’s national collection.…/…/28/a-bajan-cultural-showcase/
