TIDALECTICS (re)imagining isle/lands – Exhibit

November 5 @ 8:00 am to November 30 @ 9:00 pm

Free

Opening Reception November 8th 6 – 9 pm

This exhibition is an introduction to (geo)poetic and (geo)political investigations of islands and the Caribbean through the framework of “tidalectics”. A theory developed by Bajan poet and historian, Kamau Brathwaite, tidalectics is a creolization of the Western ‘dialectic’, delving beyond land-based modes of conceptualizing for the oceanic; tidalectics challenges the linear trajectory of Western imperialism and pro(re)gression through the cyclical, fluid, fluctuating, polyrhythmic,  dynamic, decentering movement of the ocean. Concerned with oceanic counter-narratives and worldviews, Tidalectics explores the reframing of islands and being/seeing (relation) in the Caribbean.”
