Coffee, Rhum, Sugar & Gold: A Postcolonial Paradox

Museum of the African Diaspora

This original exhibition looks at the legacy of European colonialism in the Caribbean through the work of ten contemporary artists. Whether connected to the Caribbean by birth or focused on the region by choice, the exhibiting artists use their work as a means of examining the relationship between the power structure, those who are controlled by it, those who benefit from it, and those who actively seek to liberate themselves from it.


This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock has to say about Coffee, Rhum, Sugar & Gold: A Postcolonial Paradox :

“Coffee, Rhum, Sugar & Gold” considers the legacy of European colonialism in the Caribbean through the work of an amazing group of artists, including Firelei Báez, Lavar Munroe and Ebony G. Patterson. The exhibition looks precisely at the role of goods, and a parallel thread posits that colonialism continues today with “the export of soft power,” the use of military force, and financial control
