ebony g. patterson’s set of panels presented in the 32nd bienal de são paulo is an attempt to draw parallels between the socio-cultural contexts of brazil and jamaica. as a reaction to the high murder rates of black children and youths in both countries, patterson portrays a childhood that has potential for creating and transforming, but that at the same time suffers in the face of violent and exclusionary systems. patterson draws from references in painting to compose scenes and portraits that relate to street culture and the violent contexts of communities in kingston, jamaica.
