Caribbean Crossroads of the World
“Caribbean: Crossroads of the World” is a three-museum exhibition displaying the island region’s art and history.
The New York Times calls the event “the big art event of the summer”. It includes more than 500 works that explore Caribbean culture and politics via concurrent displays spanning the Studio Museum in Harlem, the El Museo del Barrio and the Queens Museum of Art.
Artists include Jean-Michel Basquiat, Renee Cox and Hank Willis Thomas to Isaac Mendes Belisario and Camille Pissarro.
Visitors can purchase a single “Passport to the Caribbean” at any of the three museums which will provide access to all venues.
The shows are running now at El Museo del Barrio and the Queens Museum of Art until Jan. 6, 2013, and at the Studio Museum in Harlem until Oct. 21, 2012.
