Ronald Rose-Antoinette: Black Queer cultural expressions and aesthetics sung by the Caribbean

May 1, 2021 – Dec 31, 2021

Ronald Rose-Antoinette’s research is invested in documenting and improvising the deviant, intricate affairs between Black and Queer socialities under and away from the normative/hygienic logistics of straightness and fitness. Currently, his research is devoted to the composition of sustainable modes and models for sharing and tending to Black Queer cultural expressions and aesthetics sung by the Caribbean. 

Rose-Antoinette is a Martinican writer, scholar and independent curator. He is the co-author of Nocturnal Fabulations (Open Humanities Press, 2017), an experimental book dwelling in Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s cinema. He has published on visual and performative arts including in MICE MagazineFlash Art International and South Atlantic Quarterly. His most recent curatorial projects include Open Justice (2020), an online film exhibition commissioned by Denise Ferreira da Silva and the University of British Columbia; soul, with a difference (2020), a group exhibition at articule in Montreal; and The Musical Question and The Musical Answer (2021), an open listening practice featuring Le Mardi Gras Listening Collective, commissioned by the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal. He is currently based in Martinique. 


This Curatorial Research Fellowship was made possible by the Marian Goodman Gallery Initiative in honor of the late Okwui Enwezor, with additional support from Steve McQueen and members of ICI's Board of Trustees and Leadership Council.
