Visual Culture: Caribbean Art Takes Over NYC

Words by Jesse Serwer—

New York City is the biggest melting pot for Caribbean culture there is, so it’s affirming to see the city’s cultural institutions finally put together an event that’s reflective of this. Spread out between three venues—El Museo del Barrio (through Jan. 6); Queens Museum of Art (through Jan. 6); and the Studio Museum in Harlem (through Oct. 21)— “Caribbean: Crossroads of the World” is “the big art event of the summer season in New York,” The New York Times wrote, and “likely the most expansive art event of the summer,” according to ArtInfo.

You can preview both Disc 1 (tracks curated and recorded by Gilles) and Disc 2 (previously recorded tracks by upcoming Cuban artists collected in one place) in the form of this mini-mix (below), poured by the master-blender himself. But you can also hear more tracks over here and download the track “Vida,” featuring Osdalgia Edgaro by simply putting your email address in the slot, for a more digestible taster.
