En Mas’: Carnival, Junkanoo and Performance Art of the Caribbean is the first major scholarly curatorial project to account for the influence of Carnival, mas and other masquerade cultures on contemporary performance practices in and of the Caribbean, North America, and Europe.” En Mas’ charts an alternative path for performance art in the steps of Carnival and other festivals in the Caribbean and its diasporas.

En Mas’: Carnival, Junkanoo and Performance Art of the Caribbean is curated by the Caribbean curators, Claire Tancons (Guadeloupe) and Krista Thompson (Bahamas), and co-organized by Contemporary Arts Center New Orleans (CAC) and Independent Curators International (ICI). It is made possible by an Emily Hall Tremaine Exhibition Award with additional support provided by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

Featured artists include John Beadle (Bahamas), Charles Campbell (Jamaica), Christophe Chassol (France), Nicolás Dumit Estévez (Dominican Republic and US), Marlon Griffith (Trinidad), Hew Locke (UK), Lorraine O’Grady (US), Ebony G. Patterson (Jamaica) and Cauleen Smith (US).
