Transoceanic Visual Exchange 2019 Screenings

Fresh Milk (Barbados), in partnership with China Residencies (NYC/China), The Barbados Museum & Historical Society (BMHS), Alice Yard (Trinidad & Tobago) and CACHE Space (Beijing, China), is pleased to present the schedule for the 2019 edition of Transoceanic Visual Exchange (TVE), a series of programmes taking place this year between Barbados, China and Trinidad & Tobago.

TVE is a collection of recent films and videos from artists practicing in the Caribbean, China and their diasporas. TVE aims to negotiate the in-between space of our cultural communities outside of traditional geo-political zones of encounter and trade, intending to build relations and open up greater pathways of visibility, discourse and knowledge production between the regional art spaces and their communities.

The Caribbean screenings will take place in Trinidad & Tobago on Tuesday, November 12th at Alice Yard, 80 Roberts Street, Woodbrook, Port of Spain, and in Barbados on Friday, November 15th at the Barbados Museum & Historical Society, Dalkeith Road, Bridgetown and Sunday, November 17th at the Fresh Milk studio, Walkers Dairy, St. George. The screenings in China will take place Wednesday, November 6th at CACHE, No.11 Liao Ge Zi, Qixing East Street, 798 Art District, Chaoyang, Beijing.

Additionally, the online exhibition of works will be available for viewing from November 23rd – December 21st.
