Bim launch of See Me Here

On Thursday 26 June we launched our latest publication, See Me Here: A Survey of Contemporary Self-Portraits from the Caribbean, in Barbados as part of Fresh Milk XVI.

This event featured a small exhibition of the work of the four Bajan artists in the book – Ewan Atkinson, Annalee Davis, Joscelyn Gardner and Sheena Rose – all of whom were present for a spirited panel discussion on their work and the definition of self within a Caribbean context. R&C’s co-editor, Melanie Archer, also sat in on the panel, which was moderated by Barbadian artist, Russell Watson.

After the discussion, Fresh Milk’s Katherine Kennedy wrote an insightful review of the book that can be found here.
