Event Details

Saltwater Cures All is a compilation of video works featuring Racquel Rowe in her native island of Barbados. Rowe explores ideas of the formation of the Black Atlantic, personal and familial connections to the sea, relationships between Black people and water and the idea of rebirth. Many of the works feature the East coast of the island, the first point of contact that European colonialists would have made; through the juxtaposition of land and sea, Rowe asks viewers to consider the implications of these idealized scenes and their historical and present-day implications for the Black populations that call these islands home. We invite you to join us on opening night for light refreshments and an artist talk.
