3rd Sundaze presents BODY

3rd Sundaze is a roving curatorial project as an experiment and layer of a blue-print where artists, thinkers and policy-makers continually craft models and modes of being, doing and growing. Named to reflect that bubble of space and time somewhere in between, that node where we may find balance or tip, 3rd Sundaze acts as Marielle Barrow’s personal space of social practice and Creative Industry Research influenced by her artistry and scholarship. It is a snapshot or furnace of a larger social entrepreneurial practice most recently reflected in the Caribbean InTransit project. This first edition of 3rd Sundaze encompasses performance art and visual art hinging on the Black Body. It is also the launch of a special edition of Tout Moun on Affect, Speech Acts and the Body.

“My art battles for my attention, while I revel in the words of novelists and poets, yearn for stimulating community, find structure in scholarship and raison d’etre in social entrepreneurship. The curatorial space offers an opportunity to draw my different selves into one practice and one space. For a moment. In episodes. Or fragments.” Dr. Marielle Barrow

Body is the first series within the 3rd Sundaze curatorial project and will take place on December 10th, 2017 from 5:00pm – 9:00pm at the Art Society of Trinidad & Tobago, Federation Park, Port of Spain. Tickets can be purchased by calling 868 342 0307 or 868 305-0539. Interested persons can register  here.

It follows on from Caribbean InTransit’s 2013 Symposium “Body, Institution, Memory” held in conjunction with the Postgraduate Program in Cultural Studies at UWI, St. Augustine for Caribbean InTransit’s first festival “The Meeting Place”. The body, how we think about it, represent it and treat with it, is a national concern and one about which we must dialogue. The event will feature a catalogue with an education component for high school students. Body addresses a national concern especially with regard to women and more specifically violence against   women. Deep national engagement and dialogue surrounding this issue is critical and Body enters this dialogue both through the visual and performative. For this first edition, a range of artists from various ‘schools’ of art in Trinidad & Tobago will participate.
