Denzil Forrester is included in 'Forecast Form'
Taking the 1990s as its cultural backdrop, ‘Forecast Form: Art in the Caribbean Diaspora, 1990s–Today’ is the first major group exhibition in the United States to envision a new approach to contemporary art in the Caribbean diaspora, foregrounding forms that reveal new modes of thinking about identity and place. It uses the concept of weather and its constantly changing forms as a metaphor to analyse artistic practices connected to the Caribbean, understanding the region as a bellwether for our rapidly shifting times.
The exhibition is curated by Carla Acevedo-Yates, Marilyn and Larry Fields with Iris Colburn, Curatorial Assistant, Isabel Casso, former Susman Curatorial Fellow, and Nolan Jimbo, Susman Curatorial Fellow. It is accompanied by an expansive catalogue featuring scholarship as well as extensive plate sections reproducing exhibition artworks in full colour. It includes essays authored by Carlos Garrido Castellano, Genevieve Hyacinthe, Aaron Kamugisha, and Mayra Santos-Febres, as well as a roundtable conversation with Carla Acevedo-Yates, Christopher Cozier, María Magdalena Campos-Pons and Teresita Fernández. The exhibition is designed by SKETCH | Johann Wolfschoon, Panamá.
