The Visual Life of Social Affliction: A Small Axe Project

The Visual Life of Social Affliction: A Small Axe Project

The Visual Life of Social Affliction seeks to grapple with the ways in which Caribbean visual practice critically engages long-standing experiences of social suffering. Recognizing the real senses in which the Caribbean not only was born in the structural violence of Native genocide, African slavery, and Indian indenture instituted by colonial powers, but has been sustained since then by the relentless continuation of institutionalized disrespect, disregard, and dishonor, this project seeks to capture the destructive impact of dominating powers on the lives of Caribbean people. Our wager is that the visual arts constitute one of the most vital expressive and hermeneutic optics through which to explore social life in general and the life of social affliction in particular.

Anthony "BigMo" Morley: "The Bahamas on Canvas: Historic and Nostalgic”

Growing up on the Island of Grand Bahama in the quaint settlement of Eight Mile Rock, Anthony “Big Mo” Morley’s artistic Journey began. Surrounded by the beauty of nature; the beautiful flowers that bloomed in the spring, the hibiscus in all its varied colours, the yellow elders and the magnificent poincianas which lit up the evening sky, blended with the yellows and oranges of the sunset all set Morley’ creative juices flowing.
