CARIBBEAN CANON: A Caribbean Art Education Initiative with Daniela Fifi, Stephanie Cunningham & Erin Hylton with Prologue by Dr. Marsha Pearce.
The history of art in the Caribbean exists in its fragmented past, resulting in the rich and culturally diverse artistic practices present throughout the region. Despite the immense impact that Caribbean art forms have had on the economies and unique cultures of these islands, many of their artistic practices have been inadequately researched and documented. Furthermore, Caribbean art forms are oftentimes left out of the national discourse within education. This presentation aims to address the lacuna present within Caribbean art education by presenting an online platform that will provide information and resources to regional and global audiences.
