For the annual Art in America Guide, published in print in January, the editors of A.i.A. highlight significant and intriguing museum exhibitions throughout the year. Below is a list of noteworthy shows opening in January (or that remain on view after opening late last year).
Forecast Form: Art in the Caribbean Diaspora, 1990s–Today
The pivotal decade of the 1990s ushered in profound global socioeconomic and political changes that were reflected in the art world, which became more concerned with casting light on previously “marginal” artists and communities, including those of the Caribbean. Using the weather as a metaphor and the region as a bellwether for our rapidly changing times, “Forecast Form: Art in the Caribbean Diaspora, 1990s–Today” looks at how those changes affected art in and from the diaspora. Among the 36 artists in the show are Ebony G. Patterson, Lorraine O’Grady, Cosmo Whyte, and Teresita Fernández.
