Caribbean Art

Caribbean Art Collection offer individual event concepts (f.e. concerning the history of the caribbean area), temporary solutions (art works in restaurants, offices and more) and organize workshops. Optional it is possible to get on to musicians and performance artists from the caribbean area. "Events" ocurred for example at the Jamaican Embassy in Berlin.

Caribbean Art Collection permantly supports the association "Caribbean Art Collection e.V." with loans.

Caribbean Art Collection was launched 2004 under the auspices of the Ambassador of Jamaica, her Excellency Marcia Gilbert-Roberts, and with the support of the agency "Eßkultur" in the Museum for Ethnology, Berlin-Dahlem.

The idea for Caribbean Art Collection had the Jamaican Lydia Tulloch-Déhee. She studied Psychology in New York and has lived in Tanzania / E. Africa, Geneva / Switzerland and Paris / France. Since 1992 she has been living in Berlin. Her wide travels and contact with the United Nations Organisation (UNO) has given her insight into different cultures and languages but she still maintains her strongest ties to Jamaica. The goal of Caribbean Art Collection is to support caribbean art and artists as well as supporting social projects in the Caribbean. Supporting of Berlin artists is an additional aim.

All artworks can be purchased as well as be loaned. The paintings and sculptures on their website (http://www.caribbean-artcollection.de/index.html) represent a selection of their stock.
