March 17 – 27 2022 ▪︎ presented by Galerie Amarrage in France.
“Manifesto exhibition, Heritages, brings together women and non-binary photographers to celebrate the diversity of feminist engagement and to write an inclusive narrative of the history of art and photography.
Around strong and meaningful themes, the selected works address the question of representation, intersectionality or
all with a committed female gaze. Because of the profiles of each person, the themes and points of view are multiplied and offer a great diversity of views. Through the photographs exhibited and the style of each photographer, the notions of transmission, inspiration and creation common to all artists can be seen in the watermark.

‘Fuerzas Naturales’ solo show by Mónica Rodríguez (exhibition)

“Fuerzas Naturales” by Mónica Rodríguez—Puerto Rican artist based in Los Angeles, California—will be on view at Kilometro 0.2 (Km 0.2) in Puerto Rico. The opening takes place on March 12, 2022, from 6:00 to 11:00pm. The exhibition is inspired by texts from the work of the Puerto Rican anarchist and union leader Luisa Capetillo. The exhibition is articulated by a series of ink drawings based on some of the most relevant texts that chronologically establish narratives in the present time and a series of sculptures inspired by the remnants of what was the home of the feminist and union leader. In a kind of carpe diem and as artist Jorge González mentions below,
“Mónica’s work is rooted in drawing, organizing and establishing links to generate acts of solidarity, mediating liberating work and emancipating energy, which allows us to actively participate in regenerative ways. Mónica Rodríguez’s commitment recognizes our struggles and guides (ancestors) determined to eradicate systematic violence; she places us within other possible ways of relating to one other based on a deep love for the humankind of the future.”

They also shouldered the role of a medium carrying messages from the diseased to the living and assisting the sociological process of the rites of passage. The stilt dancers survived the Middle Passage and thrived in the Caribbean albeit with visual and contextual changes.

Non-Traditional , Eight Emerging Artist (online show)
March 9th – March 23rd 2022 ▪︎ presented by Caribbean Global in Barbados.
Eight Emerging Artists
“As we move further and further away from the generations that created what has been deemed ‘tradition’ in Barbados and the Caribbean, I am on a search to identify the narratives that are currently being produced by Caribbean artists today. Non-Traditional is, therefore, work that has a connection with traditional Caribbean imagery or stories but is realized in a modern context that reflects the contemporary artist and engages the viewer in an unprecedented way.”
