The Port: Behind-the-scenes look at "Caribbean: Crossroads of the World"

Get a behind-the-scenes look at the installation of two rare paintings by 19th century artist Richard Evans and watch interviews by PAMM Chief Curator Tobias Ostrander and artist Edouard Duval-Carrié.

Caribbean: Crossroads of the World highlights over two centuries of rarely seen works—from paintings and sculptures to prints, photographs, installations, films, and videos—dating from the Haitian Revolution to the present. This exhibition employs an inter-disciplinary approach to advance our understanding of the Caribbean and its artistic heritage and contemporary practices. It focuses on four central themes: Fluid Motions, Counterpoints, Shades of History, and Kingdoms of this World.
