In an unprecedented collaboration organized by El Museo del Barrio with the Queens Museum of Art and The Studio Museum in Harlem, CARIBBEAN: Crossroads of the World, an ambitious and trailblazing exhibition, will highlight over two centuries of rarely-seen works from the Haitian Revolution (c. 1804) to the present. The show features more than 400 works including painting, sculpture, prints, books, photography, film, video and historic artifacts from various Caribbean nations, Europe and the United States. Transcendent in scope, CARIBBEAN: Crossroads examines the exchange of people, goods, ideas and information between the Caribbean basin, Europe and North America and explores the impact of these relationships on the Caribbean and how it is imagined. This citywide endeavor, supported by a major grant from MetLife Foundation, opens in the midst of Caribbean American Heritage Month, observed nationally during the month of June.

Featuring Live Music, DJs and Complimentary Cocktails provided by Bacardi!

CARIBBEAN: Crossroads will be on view to the public at all three institutions. To encourage viewers to visit the entire exhibition, paid admission to any of the venues will include a ticket good for complimentary entry to the other two sites.
