Finding the Thread

Finding the Thread: A Visual Arts Conversation will be hosted by architect Sean Leonard at Alice Yard, 80 Roberts Street, Woodbrook, Port of Spain, Trinidad, on Friday 1 June at 6.30 pm. Admission is free and all are welcome.

Writer and researcher Anne Walmsley and artists Stanley Greaves and Christopher Cozier will have an open discussion, introduced and moderated by CRB editor Nicholas Laughlin, finding the thread that connects the Caribbean Artists Movement (CAM), founded in London in 1966, with regional conversations of the 1970s derived from Georgetown, Guyana, and recent initiatives in the visual arts.

Alice Yard is Sean Leonard's great-grandmother's backyard--an informal outdoor space with which he has been experimenting. Four generations of children played and imagined in that yard, and now Leonard wants to continue this tradition.

For more information, call (868) 622-6361.
