Artist in residence: Joanna Crichlow
Mirror, Mirror, from the Blueprints series
Alice Yard is hosting Barbadian artist Joanna Crichlow for a two-week residency in early July 2011. A recent BFA graduate of Barbados Community College, Crichlow explores what she calls “industrialised idealism” and portrayals of the female body in her two-dimensional works. She will give a public talk about her practice and her experiences in Trinidad at a date to be announced.
This residency continues Alice Yard’s engagement with regional art dialogues, and follows past residencies and visits by Sheena Rose of Barbados, Heino Schmid and John Cox of the Bahamas, O’Neil Lawrence of Jamaica, Marcel Pinas of Suriname, and other artists from the wider Caribbean.
