The Fresh Milk Art Platform (Barbados) and TEOR/ética (Costa Rica) are partnering to screen a selection of film and video works – video art, new media and expanded cinema – made within the last 5 years by contemporary artists practicing in the Caribbean and Central America for the fourth edition of Transoceanic Visual Exchange (TVE), a series of programmes taking place online this year, with accompanying screenings in Barbados and Costa Rica.
While the foundation of TVE is the collection of recent artists’ film and video works submitted from each region, the final shape and content of the programme will be informed by an open conversation process, which aims to involve and promote discussion within the wider creative communities of each arts initiative.
We would like to invite those based in the Caribbean with an interest in regional video-based works to an online roundtable facilitated by Fresh Milk via Zoom, to discuss contemporary film and new media art in the Caribbean and share your thoughts about recent developments in the genres. This forum will be open to the public.
Ahead of the roundtable, we are sharing a public survey about film and video art in the region, which will add to the discourse in our community session.
More on the programme and the first three editions can be found on the TVE website here.
