NLS Public Open Studio


A free, public open studio with current New Local Space artist-in-residence T’waunii Sinclair will be held this weekend. In his current work, Sinclair experiments with installation and sculpture in order to focus on the machete as an aesthetic object and relic of cultural significance to black people as a tool of labour and revolution.

During his residency, T’Waunii Sinclair has been exploring revolutionary narratives within black history and identities using the Haitian Revolution as his point of departure. Sinclair’s work is driven by the discourse and scholarship surrounding race, politics, race-politics, and histories of subjugation.

T’waunii Sinclair (b. 1992, Manchester, Jamaica) studied Painting at the Edna Manley College of Visual and Performing Arts in Kingston Jamaica (2015). In 2017 Sinclair exhibited in the Jamaica Biennial, National Gallery of Jamaica (Kingston, Jamaica) and 2019 the group exhibition Dark Matter, Cage Gallery, Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts, (Kingston, Jamaica).
