Relational Undercurrents: Contemporary Art of the Caribbean Archipelago, curated by Dr. Tatiana Flores, offers a reading of the twenty-first-century artistic production of the Caribbean that employs the archipelago as an analytical framework. The exhibition focuses, first and foremost, on locating thematic continuities in the art of the Caribbean islands. Through the trope of the archipelago, Relational Undercurrents challenges the understanding of the Caribbean as discontinuous, isolated, hermetic, and beyond comprehension.
