Revolutionary Ripples: Caribbean History, Contemporary Art 

Friday, October 8th - 2:00 pm (CT)

Virtual Program

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition The Kingdom of This World, Reimagined, this virtual program brings together an interdisciplinary panel of experts on Caribbean visual art, literature, and history to discuss the ways in which historical events and processes in the Caribbean continue to be persistent and relevant to the idea of social justice today, particularly in Afro-diasporic communities. This program is free and open to the public.

The Kingdom of This World, Reimagined presents a selection of contemporary work inspired by Alejo Carpentier’s historical novel, The Kingdom of This World, which recounts the Haitian Revolution and its profound impact on the emergent nation. For the book’s 70th anniversary, an international cohort of artists, each with ties to the Caribbean, responds to Carpentier’s innovative storytelling via a dynamic grouping of artworks that interpret the historical chronicling of the Caribbean through visual means.

Funding for this program was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program does not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
