About the Artist: “Over the past 20 years Jackie Hinkson has expanded his repertoire of subjects and his range of media. In addition to the numerous (some 75) sketch pads that he has filled with sketches and visual notes on people, places and events, he has produced " in which he has depicted events from the life of Christ in a contemporary Trinidadian context. These works exhibited in 2002 ­and 2003 and have received wide national acclaim. In 2002 the Unit Trust Corporation sponsored a retrospective of Hinkson's work covering some 40 years. It included exhibitions of drawings and sculpture, watercolours, oils and murals (including the Life of Christ series). This retrospective was the impetus for a book published in December 2003 on Hinkson's drawings, 'Drawing for Days' -­ 40 years of Drawings by Jackie Hinkson. Hinkson continues to draw extensively and to paint plein-air watercolours and oils. He has begun a new series of figurative wood sculptures and is currently working on a 8 1/2 foot by 100 foot mural entitled 'Masquerade' in which certain aspects of Trinidad society are portrayed through the metaphor of Carnival. This work reflects an increasing tendency in Hinkson's work towards social commentary ...” Read more: Jackie Hinkson-Bio

About the Artist: “Fazal Ali has definite ideas about the use of colour and tries to put them into practice in his paintings. His works have no abstract basis but more than half of the surfaces are clearly abstract impressionism. At secondary school in Trinidad, Ali would encounter the great cubist painter LeRoy Clarke. Clarke's 'Lam' like images painted on the scale of Diego Rivera's murals proved to be an ennobling experience for the young student. Douens in the eyes of Ali was a repainting of the French Creole folklore characters already depicted in the works of Alfredo Codallo but now through the lens of an African mythology. A lifelong friendship between the two gentlemen ensued that is cherished to this day. Ali, who was enrolled at the University of the West Indies, would continue his academic life there, but at the same time he expanded his visual arts skills by pursuing silk screen, lino block and woodblock printing, lithography and watercolour painting at workshops hosted by the Trinidad and Tobago Art Society at the National Museum and Art Gallery ...”Read more: Fazal Ali Biography

Event: Alice Yard and Granderson Lab present “YEAR X” - a twelve-month programme of projects and events ending in September 2017 at Alice Yard — Trinidad & Tobago, West Indies

“YEAR X” September 11, 2016-September 2017 @ Alice Yard
Event: Alice Yard and Granderson Lab present “YEAR X” - a twelve-month programme of projects and events commencing on Sunday, September 11, 2016 at Alice Yard — Trinidad & Tobago, West Indies; Location: Alice Yard is the backyard space of the house at 80 Roberts Street, Woodbrook, Port of Spain. Email: helloaliceyard@gmail.com
Event Description: “September 2016 to September 2017: Alice Yard and Granderson Lab present 'YEAR X' - a twelve-month programme of projects and events commencing on Sunday, September 11, 2016 at Alice Yard ... X = symbol to mark a specific location; X = sign for multiplication; X = an unknown variable; X = 10. In September 2016, Alice Yard marks its tenth anniversary as a space for conversation and experiment. Beginning in a modest Woodbrook backyard, our activities have gradually expanded through creating a small gallery space, residency quarters for visiting artists and curators, a bandroom used by dozens of musicians for rehearsal, and the adjunct space Granderson Lab in Belmont, home to a number of artists and creative collaboratives. We began ten years ago with questions and possibilities. Our evolution has been organic and open-ended. As we consider our actions and ideas of the past decade, our instinct is less to celebrate and more to affirm our spirit of investigation and exchange, our ethos of generosity and independence. As we prepare to begin our second decade, on Sunday 11 September, 2016, Alice Yard will host an installation by artist in residence Blue Curry, alongside September 2006, a modest exhibition drawn from our archives and documenting the moment of Alice Yard’s beginning ten years ago. We will also share details of a curatorial collaboration between Blue Curry and Alice Yard co-director Christopher Cozier, which will unfold over the coming month: a series of site-specific, public-domain projects by various artists, exploring questions of authorship, decision-making, and the artwork as event or action rather than object exclusively. These activities will also open YEAR X, a twelve-month programme of projects and events that reflect on the archive of our past and the prospects of our future. We invite our collaborators, interlocutors, and friends to join us in imagining what might be possible in 'a backyard on a small island.' All are invited.”Read more: Alice Yard
About the Venue: “Since 2008, Alice Yard has run a residency programme hosting artists, curators, and other creative practitioners wishing to visit and work in our space and with our network of collaborators, or to research and experience the contemporary art scene in Port of Spain. We have hosted visitors on stays ranging from a few days to a few months, some focusing on a specific project or work in progress, others more open-ended and exploratory. We have also hosted “local” residencies for Trinidad-based artists requiring temporary working space to explore an idea or complete a project. . . . Alice Yard is at once a physical space, a collaborative network, and an ongoing conversation about contemporary art and creativity in the Caribbean. Based in the backyard of the house at 80 Roberts Street, Woodbrook, Port of Spain, Alice Yard has been a venue for creative experiment since opening in September 2006. We draw on the long tradition of communal 'yard' spaces in urban Trinidad, places of improvisation and exchange.” — Read more: Alice Yard and Alice Yard-Facebook
