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

Event Description: “The National Gallery of Jamaica’s Last Sundays programme for September 24, 2017 will feature the Quilt Performing Arts Company. Visitors will also be able to view the 'We Have Met Before' and the 'Annabella and Peter Proudlock Collection' exhibitions. The Quilt Performing Arts Company was born out of a need for a fresh, new, innovative way of creating performance art. Using Caribbean rhythms, merging poetry, music and dance, the Quilt performers have developed their own unique performance style and an evolving theatre technique. Artistic director Rayon Mclean and his team continue break boundaries and redefine performance spaces, and this time the women in the company will be quilting from their heART through music, poetry and dance. The show is called #POW- Patches of Women. This is Quilt’s third time at the National Gallery. 'We Have Met Before' opens at the National Gallery of Jamaica on September 22 and is staged in partnership with the British Council. The exhibition features Graham Fagen (Scotland), Joscelyn Gardner (Barbados/Canada), Ingrid Pollard (Guyana/UK), and Leasho Johnson (Jamaica) and revisits the challenging but important subject of trans-Atlantic slavery and its afterlives in the contemporary world, interpreted by four artists with distinctive perspectives. The exhibition brings these perspectives into dialogue and invites the public to participate to the ongoing and crucially important conversations on the subject. The 'Annabella and Peter Proudlock Collection' exhibition features selections from the collection of Annabella and Peter Proudlock, who were the principals of Harmony Hall gallery in Tower Isle, St Mary. It documents some fifty years of collecting, mostly of Jamaican art but also of art and craft from elsewhere in the Caribbean and Central America. The exhibition tells the story of Harmony Hall, which holds a unique position in the history of Jamaica’s commercial galleries as it has served the local and tourist markets, and focuses on its role in the promotion of Intuitive art. And it also tells the story of group of people who were deeply immersed in the cultural and artistic developments of post-independence Jamaica, to which they actively contributed. The National Gallery of Jamaica’s doors will be open from 11 am and close at 4 pm on Sunday, September 24, 2017 and the Quilt performance will start at 1:30 pm. As is customary, admission will be free and there will also be free tours of the exhibitions. Contributions to the National Gallery’s donations box are as always appreciated. The National Gallery gift and coffee shops will be open for business and proceeds from these ventures help to fund programmes such as Last Sundays as well as our exhibitions ...”Read more: National Gallery of Jamaica Blog
