The Expanded Caribbean: Contemporary Photography at the Crossroads

Drexel University 
The Expanded Caribbean features work by sixteen emerging and established artists with projects based in several different nations and communities neighboring the Caribbean Sea. The exhibition brings together images that document, interrogate, challenge, and otherwise engage the meaning of place in an area with a rich and complex history as a target of exploration and conquest, voluntary and forced migration, trade, travel, and tourism. Responding variously to cultural, historical, mythological, and personal aspects of the greater Caribbean, artists initiate dialogues about how events of the past inform contemporary experience in a continually shifting and evolving environment.
