Published

Source: Lifestyle.inq

For its latest edition of M Conversations, the institution led a curatorial walkthrough and discussion that navigated the nuances of art and in particular, the relation of abstraction and nature in their latest exhibition, “Wild: Women Abstractionists on Nature” at the Metropolitan Museum of Manila.

“In abstract art, there’s like a little bit of suspicion around it sometimes. Figurative art is quite easy to understand, right? It’s representational and all that. But in abstract art, you still get people who make comments like, ‘Oh, I can do that, you know, anyone can do that’… But there are many layers.”

On Saturday, June 1, I walked into a busy Volunteer Park, with cars lining the road. It was a cloudy, misty Saturday morning as a crowd came together in front of the Seattle Asian Art Museum (SAAM). After a few minutes of anticipation, seven women, fully covered in sequined red, gold, blue, green, purple, orange, and violet chadors, walked out of SAAM and toward the center of the park. The chadoras walked through the crowd, speaking only through gestures, bestowing peace and warmth on everyone.

People greeted the chadoras, who responded with their hands on their hearts. They proceeded along the path to the museum steps, with the crowd following. With that, the Volunteer Park portion of the show came to a close, and the chadoras left to make their way to the next part of the show, Westlake Park, and ultimately the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) in Downtown Seattle.

In 1962, a new Jamaican consciousness and sense of self was reborn in fire through ceremonial state independence from Britain, its former enslaver and colonist. Not since the initiation of the Universal Negro Improvement Association – founded in 1914 by the internationalist political leaders Marcus Garvey and his first wife, Amy Ashwood Garvey – did the country’s Black majority overwhelmingly acknowledge themselves as the sons and daughters of the African diaspora and active participants in the global Black struggle for liberation, in tandem with the political selfhood they wished to attain. Central to these efforts were self-imaging and esteem-raising cultural work. As Jamaica-born historian Colin A. Palmer states in Inward Yearnings: Jamaica’s Journey to Nationhood (2016): ‘The timing of Jamaica’s birth, for good or ill, was essentially an accident of history […] its fate would depend largely on the people’s capacity to imagine, design and build their own passageways to the future
