HOME? Does it feel that way? How does it feel?

What are the aesthetics of HOME when we consider the built environment?

As part of their pop-up collaboration on HOME, visiting Trinidadian artist Chris Cozier and local tricksters Intelligent Mischief will share reflections on their work in the world as Caribbean artists and creatives and discuss the ways in which the arts and culture help us find and make home wherever we are.

Christopher Cozier is an artist and writer living and working in Trinidad. A 2013 Prince Claus Award laureate, he has participated in a number of exhibitions focused upon contemporary art in the Caribbean and internationally. Since 1989 he has published a range of essays in a number of catalogues and journals. Cozier was a SITE Santa Fe – SITE lines Satellite Curatorial Advisor for 2014. Works by Cozier can be seen at David Krut Projects NY and at Francoise Heitsch Galleries in Munich. He was recently awarded a 2015 Cannonball Residency.
