Ixora Coccinea: propositions for a public monument with andil gosine 

October 8, 2024, 5:30–7:00 PM

In this Research and Academic Program lecture, artist-scholar Andil Gosine (York University / Beinecke Fellow) will preview his bronze sculpture Ixora Coccinea from his forthcoming exhibition Nature’s Wild at the Art Museum of the Americas (June 2025). Gosine will consider contemporary and historical personal and sociopolitical catalysts for his sculpture. Ixora Coccinea is at once invested in contestation of anthropocentrism, observation and documentation of the historical significance of the labor system of Indentureship to the formation of Caribbean space and culture, and reckoning with traditions of public monument-making practices. Its propositions, particularly as a contemporary and future-looking eco-aesthetic strategy, emerge from and engage with intersecting ruminations across these concerns. 

Presented in person in the Clark auditorium.
