Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) and Caribbean Art Fair (CArt) has its first virtual artist talk coming up on Saturday, November 28, 2 – 3:30 p.m. moderated by co-guest curator Greg Manuel. This program is brought to you in partnership with The Black Artists’ Networks in Dialogue (BAND) who will be hosting the Zoom event.

The artists will take time to explain their individual practices and influences and will discuss the ways in which their imagery is influenced by and speaks to their connection to the Caribbean, the history of place and ideas around the construction of identity. Also joining the discussion will be a panel of guest commentators including Julie Crooks, Curator, Arts of Global Africa and the Diaspora at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), Marlene Smith, British artist and Curator and Paul Roth, Director of the Ryerson Image Centre in Toronto who are experts in the international field of photography.
