Antillean Visions: Maps and the Making of the Caribbean features nearly 200 rare, beautiful, and historically significant maps of the region, taking us from the earliest published view of the Antilles (1511) through the past five centuries of migration, commerce, conflict, and cultural production. These gorgeous pieces provide the viewer a visual meditation on colonial and post-colonial politics, the Caribbean’s unique economic history, indigenous and hybrid cultural productions, and aesthetic visions of the region including its long tradition as a tourist paradise. 

Generous support for Antillean Visions is provided by HistoryMiami Museum, Fortress Fine Art Storage, Jay I. Kislak and the Kislak Foundation Collection, and Beaux Arts.
