National Gallery West hosted its inaugural Artist Talk to accompany its current exhibition, ‘I Shall Return Again’ on Friday, December 7, 2018. Moderated by the exhibition’s curator O’Neil Lawrence, this conversation included featured artists, Monique Gilpin, Leasho Johnson, and Cosmo Whyte, alongside guest panelist, Carla Moore lecturer in Gender and Development Studies at the University of the West Indies’ western campus. The discussion explored the ways in which the themes of postcolonial identities, gender, sexuality and Dancehall culture are explored in their work and how these themes relate to Western Jamaican realities.
