Ideas - Exchanges- Experiences - UWI Art

UWI students get it right

Drawing by Nicolai Noel shown at the National Museum of Trinidad and Tobago

I ventured in to The National Museum on Friday to see the latest University of the West Indies student show. I was very pleased with the results. The only little issue I have is in the annex space. The work in that space looked like the poor step-child next to the wonderfully finished displays in the main gallery. At last the students are coming into a maturity in regard to process and presentation. There are definately reasons to go take a look. Pottery with a sensitivity by Adam Williams, gorgeous experimental bags made in mesh by Linda Goodridge, A super modern, whole grown art piece by Kim See Tai, a really tongue in cheek, cheeky, clever installation sculpture by Eden Bissoon and a lovely fractured canvas of riotous colour by Seema N. Pustam are all worth the trip. After many posts about my concerns about what is being prduced at UWI, this show is on the right track. - Adele
