Simonette Quamina: Canboulay

Simonette Quamina’s practice is rooted in the intersection between family, agricultural histories, and sociopolitical events that have shaped global migration and labor. The title Canboulay refers to the Caribbean celebration stemming from the Trinidad slave rebellion, as well as the burning of sugarcane fields. For this exhibition, Quamina accesses the joyous aspects of Canboulay through the dark recesses of the celebration’s history.
