ABOUT THE SHOW:
 
(S)HOW is an exhibition by five artist friends who are all contemporary practitioners working in Trinidad and Tobago. The show originated from a shared interest in each other's work and a desire to exhibit as a group. (S)HOW brings together the artists’ individual concerns and ways of working across varied media into one shared space. Outside of the relationships between the artists, the show hopes to investigate the relationships between their practices, objects and gestures. Exhibiting artists include: Jaime Lee Loy, Alicia Milne, Nikolai Noel, Tamara Tam-Cruickshank and Luis Vasquez La Roche.
