Blank Canvas: September 8th, 2021 featuring Jodi Minnis and Tiffany Smith

On tonight’s “NAGB’s Blank Canvas,” we meet two more artists from “The Other Side of the Pentaprism,” curated by your host Amanda Coulson at Tern Gallery. Jodi Minnis and Tiffany Smith are juxtaposed in the show as their work uses self-portraiture to challenge the common stereotypes around women of African descent and, specifically, Caribbean women. Utilising the common tropes of tropicality, they question the superficial vision of the region and how their own identity is read and understood, using a recognizable vocabulary of colour with a large dose of humour. Tune in to hear more!

“Blank Canvas” airs each Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. on Guardian Talk Radio 96.9FM.
