Window on Memory
A solo exhibition of work by Jasmine Thomas-Girvan
April 27 – June 18, 2023

Jasmine Thomas-Girvan is a renowned Jamaican-born, Trinidad-based sculptor and jeweler who creates exquisite renditions of the painful experiences of slavery, forced migration, and colonialism that continue to impact contemporary life in the Caribbean and the Americas. Her solo exhibition Window on Memory, curated by Dr. Patsy Lewis (Director of CLACS), presents mixed-media sculptures that reflect the resilience, survival, and creativity of individuals and communities in the postcolonies. Window on Memory closes the 2021–2023 Mellon Foundation Sawyer Seminar “Rethinking the Dynamic Interplay of Migration, Race, and Ethnicity in the Caribbean and Latin America.”
