Color & Koló: Expressions of Cuba and Curaçao is an exhibition of new work by the local artist, which explores the two Caribbean island countries of Cuba and Curaçao. A mix of indigenous heritage and colonial rule have uniquely influenced and shaped the history and architectural landscape of these countries over the centuries. Although both islands are categorically Caribbean, they are almost 2,000 km away from each other and have evolved culturally, socioeconomically, politically, and architecturally into two very distinct identities. A treatise on Caribbean colour, Color & Koló (the respective Spanish and Papiamentu translation of ‘colour’), contrasts the popular northern Caribbean’s Spanish influenced Cuban landmarks against the tranquility of the southern Caribbean’s Dutch influenced Antillean landscape.
