Moko Jumbies in The New York Times
One of my images of a Moko Jumbie was just published in The New York Times to illustrate a very positive review of artist Laura Anderson Barbata's current exhibition Jumbie Camp ! at the Galeria Ramis Barquet in Chelsea, where she introduces her fabulous costumes and designs, made for the Trinidadian stilt walking (Moko Jumbies) school 'Dragon' Keylemanjahro School of Arts & Culture, to the public. Workshops and a live performance are part of the program.
The image shows stilt walking student Ria Walters, member of the above mentioned school, performing in one of Laura's costumes during Carnival in Trinidad.
The photo was used by the artist to produce a lenticular which is on view at the gallery.
!!! DON'T MISS tomorrows (Sept. 15., 3 pm) live performance by the Brooklyn Jumbies in front of the gallery, 24th street between 10th ad 11th avenue !!!
