Alice Yard Space, Friday 14 December, 2007; Nikolai Noel and Jaime Lee Loy working on 200 Drawings
Alice Yard is a non-profit organization located in the backyard space of the house at 80 Roberts Street, Woodbrook, Port of Spain. Alice Yard is administered and curated by architect Sean Leonard, artist Christopher Cozier, writer and editor Nicholas Laughlin, and musician Sheldon Holder, with the help of a growing network of creative collaborators. Alice Yard incorporated under the laws of Trinidad and Tobago.
Since late 2006, Alice Yard has been home to 12, the band led by Holder. A series of weekly Friday-night “Conversations in the Yard” organized by Holder from 2006 to early 2008 brought musicians, artists, writers, and audiences together for informal performances and interactions. In September 2007, it opened a small gallery space that hosts exhibitions, installations, film screenings, and other projects by Trinidad-based and visiting artists.
Reflecting the evolving landscape of the art scene, this platform will be updated as new information becomes available. Thanks to the artists and curators who have helped to shape and enrich the project to date.
