UPCOMING AT THE UWI MUSEUM

Two collaborative exhibitions are short-term features on our agenda in coming weeks. The first is with the Mexican Embassy in Jamaica, late April; the second is with the UWI’s Institute of Gender & Development Studies (IGDS) in June.

The Mexican Suns is the title of the exhibition that will be launched on the evening of April 24 and run until May 2. This exhibition of folk art on the theme of the sun is being presented to honour the centenary of the birth of Mexican Poet & Nobel Laureate Octavio Paz.

Later, from June 3 – 13, the Museum will host an exhibition celebrating the impact of gender analysis and programmes in the region, through 21 years of the work of the UWI’s Institute of Gender & Development Studies (IGDS).

The museum’s semi-permanent Origins exhibition will continue throughout.

In preparation for the Mexican Suns exhibition, the museum will close to the public for April 23-24.
