The exhibition series "Liquid Knowledges: Beyond the Caribbean" though outside the traditional museum white cube approach is an educational narrative for all local and cultural tourism audiences. Through a dynamic exhibitions program accompanied by accessible educational programs, this exhibition project mirrors contemporary culture and society with critical historical components of the region. This innovative project includes three blocks of activities throughout its time of presentation: "Liquid Knowledges: Beyond the Caribbean" exhibition from November 2016 through March 2017. Presented in two venues: The Little Haiti Cultural Center art gallery and the Haitian Cultural Arts Alliance exhibition space. With a team from the Brown University Center for Slavery and Justice, and the Africana Studies Department it will pay attention in the contributions of Africans to the ethnobotany of the new world as well as the ideas of the enslaved. "The Garden of Mysteries and Botany of Memory and Experience" Contemporary artists emerged from the Caribbean express their metaphor. "Antillean Lacunae: a litany of the botanical" an exhibition by Onajide Shabaka to explore, discuss and examine the relations between the colloquial and commercial uses of botanicals.

Section Two

Project coordinator and curator, Onajide Shabaka, is honored show the fruits of the labor of many, artists, writers and the fantastic staff of Florida Atlantic University for the catalog, Dirt Yuta Suelo Udongo Tè. This curatorial initiative and exhibition originally began in 2013. When FAU expressed interest in mounting the exhibition at the Ritter Gallery it was an opportunity that made perfect sense. The exhibition closed on April 5th but only this summer will the catalog be printed. We wanted it to look great and also include the presentations of readings held on February 11th. After many edits and a few revisions the catalog will soon be available. Below is the front and back covers. An email blast will be sent out when it's available!

Section Three

Artlab33 | contemporary art projects is a curatorial initiative that works with artists to provide creative partnerships and collaborations, and when possible, develop projects in and beyond the white cube of the gallery. Projects could include: studio visits, interviews, online, gallery/art space exhibitions, collaborate on projects with other artists, writers, musicians or dancers.

Tom Virgin Making and teaching art occupy most of the time that I am awake. Process is very important to my work; the nature of making woodcut prints (my primary images) is time consuming. Because it is a traditional process that is not widely used, I also teach relief printmaking,…

John Cutrone and Seth Thompson Since 2001, [John Cutrone and Seth Thompson] have been driving forces at Florida Atlantic University’s Jaffe Center for Book Arts . . . with the sole regret that that work, as satisfying as it is, leaves little time for their own presswork. Patience is a…

Jonathan Thomas From the material I collect, I perform various strategies of image manipulation defined by collage, dissection, re-contextualization, free-association, and ultimately transformation.
