Confluence: Shifting Perspectives of the Caribbean

Confluence: Shifting Perspectives of the Caribbean brings together artworks produced by 11 artists with cultural ties to the Caribbean for Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival Toronto. Commissioned as part of Art in Transit, the project will appear on PATTISON Onestop screens from July 25 – August 29, 2014.

Confluence will be presented every 10 minutes on PATTISON Onestop subway platform screens across Toronto and every 5 minutes on shopping mall screens across Canada. In addition select artworks will be presented on 2 PATTISON billboards along the Gardiner Expressway (at Kipling) from July 21 – August 3 bringing the Caribbean Carnival to the daily commuter.

Curated by Pamela Edmonds and Sally Frater of Third Space Art Projects, Confluence: Shifting Perspectives of the Caribbean highlights the work of Nicole Awai, Sandra Brewster, Charles Campbell, Delio Delgado, Polibio Díaz, Zachary Fabri, Jérôme Havre, Karyn Olivier, Sheena Rose, Wayne Salmon, and Natalie Wood.

Drawing inspiration from the geographical term that references the meeting of two or more bodies of water, the artists in Confluence address myriad subjectivities and concerns yet all in some manner or form embody the notion of movement. The artists have roots in Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, the Dominican Republic, Guyana and Martinique. Responding to the exhibiting platforms of the TTC, malls, and billboards along the Gardiner Expressway, the works in Confluence collectively touch on a range of themes such as hybridity, the performative, migration and transformation, highlighting a notion of a space that is always in flux, refracting and shifting to illuminate new perspectives.

“The opportunity to work with Third Space Art Projects and PATTISON’s Art in Transit is a unique opportunity for the Scotiabank Toronto Caribbean Carnival. Ours is a street festival that takes place in several public spaces, so why not use transit and other spaces to reveal our creativity.” ~ Denise Herrera Jackson, Chief Executive Officer, Festival Management Committee.

A reception for Confluence will take place on Thursday, July 24, 2014 from 6:00pm – 8:00pm at BAND Gallery and Cultural Space located at 1 Lansdowne Avenue, 2nd Floor (Queen St. West/Lansdowne Ave.).

Confluence: Shifting Perspectives of the Caribbean is a co-presentation of PATTISON Onestop and Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival Toronto, and was commissioned as part of PATTISON’s ongoing Art in Transit programme.
