The Edna Manley BFA students’ final project as graduating seniors was to put on an exhibition featuring work reflecting their interests and talents as artists, and exhibiting artistic and conceptual themes they’ve explored throughout their time at the college. However, instead of a small section of a gallery, each senior is given their own installation space within the fine arts studios. The works we saw were incredible, developed and concrete in their ideas and forms, and many of the artists were present and eager to share their process and ideas with us. The work ranged from fiber arts to jewelry to painting to graphic design to fashion design and everything in between. Each student displayed a unique concept, while many had overlaps in the struggle of creating and defining an authentic "Jamaican identity" - a reoccurring theme consistent throughout our stay in Kingston and in our exploration of the island's art.
