Relational Undercurrents: Contemporary Art of the Caribbean Archipelago is a major survey exhibition of twenty-first century art from islands throughout the Caribbean basin. Four sections reveal thematic ideas shared by artists whose roots are in the Caribbean: Conceptual Mappings, Perpetual Horizons, Landscape Ecologies and Representational Acts. The exhibition features artists whose painting, installation art, sculpture, photography, video, and performance pieces challenge the notion that the Caribbean is insulated and fragmented. This groundbreaking exhibition highlights the undercurrents that connect Caribbean cultures and countries.

Curated by Dr. Tatiana Flores, Associate Professor of Art History and Latino and Caribbean Studies at Rutgers University, this exhibition was organized by the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, California, as part of The Getty Foundation’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, an initiative examining the artistic legacy of Latin America and U.S. Latinos through a series of exhibitions and related programs

The accompanying catalogue includes essays by curators, critics, and scholars that discuss particular artistic traditions in Cuban, Puerto Rican, Dominican, and Haitian art, and theorize the broader decolonial and archipelagic conceptual frameworks. The catalogue is coedited by Tatiana Flores and Michelle Ann Stephens, Professor of English and Latino and Caribbean Studies at Rutgers University, New Brunswick.
