“One month after being known in that island”, which was commissioned by the Caribbean Art Initiative (CAI), is the inaugural exhibition in the newly opened space of the Kulturstiftung Basel H. Geiger in central Basel. Founded in 2019, the CAI connects and collaborates with creative individuals and groups around the world to raise awareness about the rich and diverse Caribbean artistic and cultural scene.
The curatorial team of Yina Jiménez Suriel and Pablo Guardiola were chosen through an open-call process limited to curators living or born in the Caribbean region who are actively working with Caribbean art and artists. The exhibition has allowed them to share their vision of the Caribbean and present this complex and rich artistic landscape to a Swiss audience, in the first exhibition of its kind in the country.
Featured Artists: Ramón Miranda Beltrán, Minia Biabiany, Christopher Cozier, Sharelly Emanuelson, Nelson Fory Ferreira, Tessa Mars, Elisa Bergel Melo, José Morbán, Tony Cruz Pabón, Madeline Jiménez Santil, and Guy Régis Jr.
Special Edition: Ramiro Chaves.
