ABOUT On Being Committed to a Small Space by Annalee Davis

On Being Committed to a Small Space is the fifth book in the series Local Writings. Critical Positions from Central America, the Caribbean and its Diasporas, an editorial project of TEOR/éTica focused on thinking about how the ways of seeing and making art in the region have been transformed over the last four decades. This new book continues our goal of making accessible a selection of some 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 the artist Annalee Davis (Barbados, 1963), who is one of the engines in 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 postcolonial Caribbean context and post-independence, which leads her to explore insistently on 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 promote platforms for conversation, sociability and critical exchange that see art as a tool to reimagine history, civil society and the public sphere.
