ArtServe Gets a Jamaican Curator

 

Jamaican-born Ludlow Bailey, Founder and Managing Director of Contemporary African Diaspora Art (CADA), has been appointed Consulting Curator for the 30th anniversary of ArtServe, South Florida’s leading arts incubator. The curator and art historian has served as art advisor to museums, galleries, and private collections in the US, London, Africa, and the Caribbean.  According to Jamaicans.Com, Bailey plans to enhance diversity at CADA by bringing in more African Diaspora artists, multidisciplinary and multimedia projects, and experimental works.

“The new Director really wants to engage the community in the biggest issues of our time. And, in the United States, race relations definitely is a huge one,” he says. “Although I deal with black culture and black art generally, I try to develop programmes for all. I consider what I do to be relevant and global. As a Guest Curator I get a chance to take the lead on about six of the shows for the next season.”
