The Current presents: “Eclipse” – New Works by Max Taylor and John Cox
|Smith & Benjamin’s ‘BAHAMIAN ART & CULTURE’ Issue No. 399, Thursday November 21st, 2019|
An eclipse is an obscuring of light from one celestial body by the passage of another between it and its source of illumination. It is a type of coming together – an overlapping, shadowing, crossing-over of something and another.
This new body of work by Bahamian artists Max Taylor and John Cox explores a kind of intersection, where the joining of artists, practices, ideas, material, and imagery brilliantly demonstrate the endless possibilities of art-making and its ability to overlap time and time again.
The work of Bahamian artists Tessa Whitehead and John Cox is showcased in the inaugural exhibition of The Brighton Storeroom gallery in St. George, Barbados.

It showcases ten artists whose diverse creative approaches reflect on and celebrate contemporary Caribbean life and culture. Among the ten artists are Bahamians Tessa Whitehead and John Cox
Artist Mark King in collaboration with Bregje Cox teach a workshop at the Tate Modern. Over four days they will invite the public to create bespoke patterns and mood boards that address the theme of power and how it relates to both the spaces we inhabit and the evolving environment of the Tate Exchange workshop space.
Enclothed Cognition is a collaborative project from Barbadian visual artist Mark King and Dutch fashion designer Bregje Cox. The collection is primarily inspired by the behavioral psychological theory of Enclothed Cognition. Particularly how a garment’s symbolic meaning paired with the physical experience of wearing the garment combines to impact the wearer’s performance in everyday tasks. Enclothed Cognition seeks to empower others by bringing awareness to the interplay between the clothes we wear, the built environment and the human mind.
