Curated by MOCA Curator Adeze Wilford, the exhibition consists of a series of black-and-white photographs taken on a mechanical medium format camera.
The images are contextualised by a series of oral histories related by the leaders of various troupes who oversee the design of the costume and generate the narratives surrounding Carnival. The photographs will be accompanied by a new feature-length documentary on the carnival providing a kinetic counterpoint to the portraits.
The exhibition will be on view from the 9th of November until 16th of April 2023. For more information, please visit MOCA.
