A to Z of Caribbean Art

MA website_a to z of caribbean art 1

A 300+ page art book that will offer a visual overview of Caribbean art, from the beginning of the 20th century to now.

For the past few years, I’ve been hard at work with Mariel Brown on Robert & Christopher Publishers’ forthcoming art book: A to Z of Caribbean Art. At over 300 pages, and featuring approximately 200 artists, the A to Z will provide a visual overview of Caribbean art, from the beginning of the 20th century to now. We’re expecting that it will become a must-have for art lovers, schools, universities, and libraries in Trinidad and Tobago, the Caribbean, and beyond.

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.
