While we prepare for our upcoming exhibitions, here is another short feature from our Jamaica Biennial 2017 archives.
Camille Chedda was born in 1985, in Manchester, Jamaica. She attended the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts (BFA Painting, 2007) and the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, Massachusetts (MFA, 2012). Her most recent exhibitions include the 4th Ghetto Biennale (2015) in Port-au-Prince Haiti, and Jamaican Pulse: Art and Politics from Jamaica and the Diaspora (2016) in Bristol, United Kingdom. She was the recipient of the inaugural Dawn Scott Memorial Award for her submission to the Jamaica Biennial 2014 and has participated in several artist’s residencies, at Alice Yard in Port of Spain, Trinidad in 2015 and the Art Omi International Artist Residency in Ghent, New York, 2016. Chedda works in painting, drawing and mixed media and explores issues of violence, visibility/invisibility, and race. She is based in Kingston, Jamaica.
