Tropical is Political: Caribbean Art Under The Visitor Economy Regime, curated by Marina Reyes Franco features 19 artists from the Caribbean sphere and its diasporas.

Curator: Marina Reyes Franco

Americas Society presents Tropical is Political: Caribbean Art Under the Visitor Economy Regime, an exhibition examining the impact of tourism and the “visitor economy” on the art and cultural production from the Caribbean. The term “visitor economy” denotes the ways in which a society is transformed by the economic activity—services and goods consumed—of visitors, wherein the economy is reconfigured to serve the visitor.

Tropical Is Political features works by 19 contemporary artists from the Caribbean and its diasporas, including Allora & Calzadilla, Sofía Gallisá Muriente, Gwladys Gambie, Abigail Hadeed, Joiri Minaya, José Morbán, Dave Smith, Yiyo Tirado, and Oneika Russell. Through video, installation, painting, and sculpture, the exhibition will underline the effects of tourism and finance on subjects including economic policy, self-image, and artistic production.
