The New York-based shows this summer focusing on the Caribbean have gestured to a region whose art is firmly part of an expanding interest in the African diaspora.' They follow a pattern over recent years of new blood coming to the United States from the Caribbean; a migration of sorts which artists from all over the region are scrambling to enjoin. The typical path of entry is for an individual artist, or more likely a freshly formed collective, to stake almost everything on the digital formats that are needed to float their work online. Of course it's a mode of promotion that's not unique to the Caribbean: self-marketing through the web is the contemporary default for creativity the world over.
