Relational Undercurrents: Contemporary Art of the Caribbean Archipelago at the Museum of Latin American Art, curated by Dr. Tatiana Flores, offers a reading of twenty-first century artistic production of the Caribbean that employs the archipelago as an analytical framework. The exhibition focuses, first and foremost, on locating thematic continuities in the art of the Caribbean islands. Through the trope of the archipelago, Relational Undercurrents challenges the understanding of the Caribbean as discontinuous, isolated, hermetic, and beyond comprehension. The exhibition is divided into four thematic sections; Conceptual Mappings, Perpetual Horizons, Landscape Ecologies and Representational Acts and features work by artists who have informed and shaped those themes. The exhibition includes work byMaria Elena González.
