Visual artist Annalee Davis works around issues of post-plantation economies by engaging with the landscape of Barbados where she lives. Working at the intersection of biography and history, she has been making and showing her work regionally and internationally since the early nineties. Annalee is the founder and director of Fresh Milk, a socially engaged arts platform and micro-artist residency programme on a modern dairy farm, which historically operated as a sugarcane plantation from 1667. In February 2015 she co-founded the independent Tilting Axis Conference, an attempt to breach the geopolitical gap between Caribbean territories and reconnect them through alternative forms of critical Caribbeanness and visual arts. She is the co-founder of the annual regional residency programme, Caribbean Linked, and part-time tutor in the BFA programme at Barbados Community College. She is on the board of ARC Magazine and worked as the Caribbean Arts Manager for the British Council from 2016 - 2018, developing arts programming in Cuba, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago. She is an independent Caribbean arts consultant.
