Atlas Series Images by Marc Latamie

Island Thresholds, Contemporary Art from the Caribbean, considers the sea’s profound impact on Caribbean cultures through the work of four contemporary artists. Marc Latamie, formerly from Martinique, examines the significance of tropical exports. David Boxer from Jamaica invokes the slave trade and other consequences of colonization in his work. Tony Capellán, from the Dominican Republic, and Kcho, from Cuba, present more personal points of view about Caribbean life; they invite viewers to consider social justice, isolation, and memory through the use of everyday objects in their installations.
