PANEL DISCUSSION | A Postcolonial Paradox: Caribbean Art & Economy in the Global South

Inspired by our current exhibition, Coffee, Rhum, Sugar & Gold: A Postcolonial Paradox which looks at the legacy of European colonialism in the Caribbean through the work of 10 contemporary artists — whether connected to the Caribbean by birth or focused on the region by choice, the exhibiting artists use their work as a means of examining the relationship between the power structure: those who are controlled by it, those who benefit from it, and those who actively seek to liberate themselves from it.

Our panelists all examine the postcolonial social and cultural world of the Caribbean through different lenses — the economy, visual art, and literature. Using the exhibition as its reference, this panel will look at questions of power, resilience and resistance in the postcolonial Caribbean in a conversation moderated by artist and writer Nan Collymore and including Professor Jovan Scott Lewis (Geography/African Diaspora Studies, UC Berkeley), Professor Kathleen DeGuzman (English, SFSU), and Ph.D. Candidate Indie A. Choudhury (Art History, Stanford University).
