Jamaican-born artist Renee Cox was recently appointed Assistant Professor of Visual Arts at Columbia University in New York. Her controversial work focusses on issues related to race and gender in America, offering a critique of society and celebration of black womanhood often through the use of her own body, both nude and clothed. She has several upcoming exhibitions and events in the United States later this year. And this month her photograph of Nick Cave appears on the cover of the New York Times Magazine.
Jamaican artist Garfield Morgan, who has done work for Panmedia, is one of the artist featured in When Big Man Talk, an exhibition that opens February 3 in Montreal at the Jamaica Association Arts
