Wendell McShine ‘Studio Visit’ at the KAdE Kunsthal for Who More Sci-Fi Than UsWednesday, May 2nd, 2012 Categories: Diaspora, Exhibitions, Updates
Coming up at Kunsthal KadE, from 26 May to 26 August 2012, is an exhibition entitled ‘Who More Sci-Fi Than Us, contemporary art from the Caribbean’. The exhibition is guest curated by Nancy Hoffmann. ‘Who More Sci-Fi Than Us’ features work by a representative selection of contemporary artists from all over the Caribbean, from south (Antilles and Surinam) to north (Cuba and Jamaica) and from west (Costa Rica and Panama) to east (Haiti and the Dominican Republic), and every island in between.

Here Trinidadian artist Wendell McShine speaks about preparing for the show that is set to open later this month. ‘Who More Sci-Fi Than Us’ is a discursive account of the Caribbean that reveals a kind of common culture shared by all the islands. The exhibition also shows the complexity and diversity of the region. In fact, it may actually be quite wrong to talk about ‘the Caribbean’ at all. We don’t want to ‘frame’ the artists in a geographical context but to centre attention on the account of the region.
