Artist Christopher Udemezue and Recess invite you a workshop-lecture diving into the history of Jamaica and the Caribbean at large during the 70s - 90s, followed by a Q&A. We're covering verything from the IMF/ World Bank deals with Jamaica to the historical effect of Micheal Manley. In conjunction with Udemezue's current Recess Session project, Duppy. Duppy reflects Udemezue's complex longings and projections of nostalgia toward his and his mother's homeland, Jamaica. From November 7 through December 21, Udemezue will create a sculptural installation made from printed images, resin, found objects, and audio recordings of conversations with members of the artist's personal circle that delve into the issues of race, misogyny, homophobia, family lineage, and ancestry.
