Beyond the Tropics
Curated by Sebastian Benitez
Emma Edghill, Sonet Providence, Bryan Bermudez, Talia Peckel, Daniela Jordan-Villaveces, Sebastian Benitez
Beyond the Tropics explores postcolonial issues and the search for local narratives within the work of a group of Toronto-based emerging artists of South American and Caribbean backgrounds. Emma Edghill, Sonet Providence, Bryan Bermudez, Talia Peckel, Daniela Jordan-Villaveces and Sebastian Benitez explore the subjugation of the landscape in relation to power dynamics, as well as the negotiation of the syncretic products of a colonial past. The artists’ local negotiations of identity politics become relevant as common threads through their different bodies of work.
