Alberta Whittle will be coming to the FRESH MILK Platform from October 1st to take part in an eight to ten week residency under the title ‘Second Armour.’ Her time will include a series of open forum discussions surrounding race, workshops with the Fine Art students at BCC, and finally an exhibition/intervention stemming from her experiences and research undertaken during her time with Fresh Milk.
Alberta is a Barbadian artist, currently based in Glasgow. Her practice is concerned with the construction of stereotypes of race, nationality and gender, considering the motivation behind the perpetuation and the different forms in which they are manifested. Alberta will join Fresh Milk via skype from London - where she is installing a new work at an exhibition at the London Museum - to speak to her experience as a graduate student in an MFA programme in the UK.
Shanika Grimes Off-Site Performance. Shanika is a 2012 graduate of the Barbados Community College’s BFA Fine Art Programme. She is keen to develop her work as a Performance Artist. Shanika is working to produce one performance every month over a six month period, and will be receiving feedback from an esteemed review panel, using their guidance to further her practice and build a solid body of work. The panel consists of Barbadian artist Ewan Atkinson, curator and art history professor from Rutgers University Tatiana Flores, Trinidadian artist Michelle Isava, and Venezuelan artist Sandra Vivas, all of whom have extensive experience either critically or practically with performance art.
Bibliography of The Colleen Lewis Reading Room now available online.
