From Cannon’s Fodder To The Canon
In the advancement of my performance as a Curator, I drop the mic, halting the Creator.
As the curtain calls, I am steely focused on the ushering of Artists, their stories, along with their Artworks to centre stage, serving to eradicate historical conjecture.
Crucial to my curatorial approach is the attention to conservation, protection, and accurate historical documentation of Artists and the work they create.
The Creators’ stage is designed for constant flow, yet; some Artists never get to the stage doors or answer the call of the curtains. As a Curator, it is my duty to reset the stage, and pull the curtains for the emerging, and marginalised Creators.
Not only should their Art be brought to the public’s purview; Creators should be known, and their personal stories heard, in their own words, whilst alive.
Working with emerging, misunderstood, outcasts, and mid career artist, who find themselves at an impasse; unable, or unwilling to sacrifice their Art for commercialism and trends, I wish to shine the light of posterity and on them.
My Act as a Curator was not decided by emotional theatrics or career fantasy, but; by observing real life, and the scant regard shown to persons of the Arts in my birth country, Jamaica. I chose the role of Curator, specifically to focus on International Exposure, Historical Documentation, and a creating a Bastion of Art Preservation.
When I leave the stage at the final curtain; more Artists are performing dignified roles within the light of fame and fortune, secured and protected by the Canons of Historical Context and Recognition.
Until that Job is done, my Kingdom is ‘uncome’.
