Fresh Milk, in partnership with Footscray Community Arts Center and the Barbados Community College, is pleased to present the schedule for the 2017 edition of Transoceanic Visual Exchange (TVE), a series of programmes taking place this year between Barbados and Australia.
TVE is a collection of recent films and videos from artists practicing in the Caribbean, Oceania and their diasporas. TVE aims to negotiate the in-between space of our cultural communities outside of traditional geo-political zones of encounter and trade, intending to build relations and open up greater pathways of visibility, discourse and knowledge production between the regional art spaces and their communities.
The Caribbean screenings will take place in Barbados on select dates between November 3rd – 13th at the Fresh Milk studio, Walkers Dairy, St. George and in the Morningside Gallery at Barbados Community College (BCC), Howells Road, St. Michael, while the screenings in Australia will take place at the Footscray Community Arts Centre, 45 Moreland Street, Victoria on November 18th from 10am – 5pm.
Additionally, the online exhibition of works will be available for viewing from November 20th – December 20th.
