A to Z of Caribbean Art


A to Z of Caribbean Art is a visual overview of Caribbean art, from the beginning of the 20th century to the present, and acts as a resource of information on some of the greatest artists of our region. With artists listed alphabetically, instead of being grouped by traditional methods, this book will move seamlessly through artists and sequentially mix genres including drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, installation and performance.

A to Z of Caribbean Art will take the format of a short introduction by the editors, followed by the works. Each artist will be represented by a page that shows a definitive work. In addition to this image, there will be biographical details on each artist, a short write-up about their oeuvre, and specs of the work that represents them. The artists selected will come from the English-, Dutch-, French- and Spanish-speaking Caribbean, and will be chosen based on a number of factors, including critical discourse around their work, inclusion in a significant publication, work written about in regional or international trade magazine, and participation in a curated exhibition at a major institution, or at a regional or international biennial.

This title is ready for pre-order and will ship from December 1st, 2019.
