Art Gallery of Ontario explores the complex history of the Caribbean in new major exhibition

A birthplace; a destination; a site of violent conquest, brutality and singular beauty – the Caribbean is a region bound by numerous geographical, colonial and personal connections. This fall, the Art Gallery of Ontario invites visitors to immerse themselves in those complex histories, and the art they have inspired, in the major new exhibition Fragments of Epic Memory. Featuring a selection of images from the AGO’s celebrated Montgomery Collection of Caribbean Photographs, alongside new and celebrated works by modern and contemporary artists of Caribbean descent, the exhibition opened to AGO Members on Sept. 1, 2021. Annual Passholders and members of the public may visit beginning Sept. 4, 2021. Inspired by the writing of post-war Caribbean writers and poets such as Derek Walcott, Kamau
