About

Lecture by Christopher Cozier, introduced by Gabi Ngcobo, Event in English

Actions that function between spaces—institutions, cultures, and the various enclosures that artists navigate—tell of another story. Often, for the artist and the work to be made or to become, useful, belonging-to a fixed time, place, or designated concern is required.
Negotiating these “conditions of visibility” expediently unravel as a repeating performance of mutual deceptions—a moment of exchange, with some change but no change? In the Caribbean this negotiation is very old and a very familiar story. 

An ongoing sequence of dodges, on the field, across many maps unfolds requiring constant dexterity. We remain circumspect and on the move, though, initially as property, as subjects of the various crowns or as citizens of the various republics. It was never just a plight or predicament but a strategy to get through, out around, or beyond.
