Fresh Milk welcomes the team from the Instituto Buena Bista (IBB) to Barbados this week, commencing the second part of our collaborative Satellite Project.
On Monday, IBB co-founders David Bade and Tirzo Martha, Dutch artist Erik Habets and IBB students Kristel Rigaud, Rashid Pieter and Dominic Schmetz visited the Barbados Community College (BCC), where they met with the 2nd and 3rd year students of the BFA Programme to view and discuss their work. They then travelled to the Milking Parlour Studio to conduct studio visits with young emerging artists Alicia Alleyne and Evan Avery.
Remember this Thursday night, November 29th the IBB will be giving a presentation at FRESH MILK IX, which also features a performance by Alberta Whittle, and an exhibition and sale – featuring the work of Alicia, Evan and other artists who have been on the platform. Not only can you buy a unique gift at the art sale, but you give back to the community by supporting these local and regional artists.
