In this exhibition, the Caribbean is conceptualized as both a complex spatial configuration and a temporal formation. Through video, sculpture, paintings, and installation works, The Other Side of Now illuminates ideas of survival, community, self-acceptance, environmental rights, and creative resourcefulness, painting a picture of the Caribbean region that edges toward a present-future.
