ABOUT BEING COMMITTED TO A SMALL PLACE BY ANNALEE DAVIS

On Being Committed to a Small Space is the fifth book in the Local Scriptures series. Critical Positions from Central America, the Caribbean and its Diasporas, a TEOR/éTica publishing project focused on thinking about how ways of seeing and making art in the region have been transformed over the past four decades. This new book continues our goal of making accessible a selection of several of the most relevant critical discourses and positions that have shaped critical paradigms in Central America and the Caribbean.

The book compiles six essays by artist Annalee Davis (Barbados, 1963), who is one of the driving forces behind the transformation of the Caribbean cultural landscape in the last two and a half decades. Davis reflects on the critical possibilities of art in a post-colonial and post-independence Caribbean context, which leads her to insistently explore the significance of concepts such as economy, landscape, race, gender, tourism, national identity, and plantation economies. Her writing and practice not only examine the past, but also seek to foster platforms of conversation, sociability, and critical exchange that see art as a tool for re-imagining history, civil society, and the public sphere.
