Chop Suey brings new perspective for Barbadian art and music

Chop Suey, a new art and music-based project series will offer Barbados a new way to see local visual art.

Taking visual art outside of the four walls of gallery spaces, the event series was conceptualized by a group of young creatives headed by Barbadian photographer Jaryd Niles-Morris and supported by J.Ventures International. The photographer is known for his high concept commercial images for global and local brands as well as personal fine art projects.

The series will start on Feb 23 with an exhibition of photography by Niles-Morris and dynamic sets and soundscapes created by Dionna “DJ D.Luxe” Goodman. The exhibition and after party will be held at Taco Kings, In St. Lawrence Gap. This event will be Niles-Morris’ first solo art exhibit of his photography, with pieces that explore sexuality, power and mortality.

Chop Suey is a fully immersive project that seeks to connect and showcase the talents of both local and traveling artists,” says Niles-Morris. “We chose the name to reflect the fact that it will combine pieces of different artistic mediums in a way that will be unexpected but pleasing. We wish to offer art to the wider public in a way that will be accessible but also allow them to see different types of contemporary art.”
