About being committed to a small space 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.
