New Local Space is pleased to collaborate with Transformer in their presentation of the exhibition FLOAT in Washington, DC. In the contemporary moment, “the nation” dominates much Caribbean image-making, often posited as a post-colonial response to oppressive, externally- derived constructions. This focus is shifted by the artists in FLOAT, and further curated into a détournement in which these hegemonic conceptions of social and national identity (and the status of “margin” itself) are declared compromised and inadequate. The proposed exhibition posits a renegotiation of identity; untethered by the limits normally placed on that now over-worked concept, and insistent on the recognition of the invisible but central role that the “margins” play in the making of our cosmopolitan present and future.

Curated by Nicole Smythe-Johnson.

Opening reception: May 17, 2014

RODELL WARNER: CANOPY GUILD
Kickstarter

New Local Space is proud to host Rodell Warner as our upcoming artist-in-residence.
Warner will carry out a collaborative photography, fashion and object design project from images captured in nature. Designers from Kingston have been invited to help create wearable garments and art objects from these fabrics and patterns. These final pieces will be shared publicly in a live event specific to Kingston, in which the images and patterns shape the event space. To help NLS bring Rodell Warner to Kingston to execute this project, donate as little as $1 here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2035671304/rodell-warner-art-residency-at-nls
