"The Pleasure of Disorientation: A Discussion of Caribbean Visual Arts" by Dr. Erica M. James, Director of the National Gallery of Art of The Bahamas (on leave), will cover the spectrum of 20th century to contemporary fine arts from the region.  She is a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow in Art History and Archaeology at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, and her research interests center on the Arts of the African Diaspora, particularly in the Caribbean and the Americas.  Dr. James notes, "That fine art from the Caribbean is relatively unknown is axiomatic.  In fact, at the annual Art Basel exhibition held in Miami Beach, Florida in 2009 was the first time a Caribbean Art Show was included in the national program."

All events are free and open to the public.
