#TBT | National Gallery West hosted its inaugural Artist Talk to accompany our “I Shall Return Again” exhibition in December 2018. Moderated by Chief Curator, O’Neil Lawrence, this conversation featured three of the seven artists in the exhibition, 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 the Western Jamaican realities. A Conversation with Nile Saulter & Storm Saulter who were also featured in this exhibition was hosted later on in January 2019.
The Artist Talk was held inside National Gallery West located at the Montego Bay Cultural Center.
