"Infinite Island" Caribbean art in B/klyn

There's a new exhibit of contemporary art from the Caribbean at the Brooklyn Museum. From the Times review (link):

"If identity-based art was just a passing fad for the New York art establishment, it necessarily remains of considerable interest to a wider world.

How such art can be persuasively presented is, of course, the question. The thematic categories Mr. Mosaka applies to the show — religion, politics, memory, popular culture — have been used in countless shows. They are clichés by now, perceptual straitjackets rather than enlightening guides. As conceptual models, they require rethinking, as does the model some of the art follows."
