Ewan Atkinson

Ewan Atkinson, born in Barbados in 1975, received a BFA from the Atlanta College of Art and an MA in cultural studies from the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill. He has exhibited in regional and international exhibitions, including “Wrestling with the Image: Caribbean Interventions,” at the Art Museum of the Americas, Washington, DC, in 2011; the 2010 Liverpool Biennial; and “Infinite Islands,” at the Brooklyn Museum, New York, 2007. For the past seven years his work has revolved around a fictional community and its residents—the Neighbourhood Project—which explores the development of narrative and character and the production of meaning. Roleplay and theatricality are important aspects of the work. Fictional characters “played” by the artist are the tools with which blurred histories and cryptic relationships are illustrated. Recent work has been primarily Web-based, appearing in the form of a serialized visual blog (theneighbourhoodreport.tumblr.com). He is the coordinator of the BFA in studio art at the Barbados Community College, where he cofounded the Punch Creative Arena, an initiative that aims to foster creative action.
