Island Revolution: Jamaican Rhythm from Ska to Reggae

Curated by Selene Wendt in collaboration with the Experience Music Project, Seattle, WA. 

Island Revolution – Jamaican Rhythm from Ska to Reggae, 1956 – 1981 represents a unique opportunity to experience the development of Jamaican music including dub and DJ music. Henie Onstad Art Centre was the first museum given the opportunity to present this interactive exhibition since it was produced and shown at Experience Music Project in Seattle. As the most comprehensive  exhibition ever about the history of Jamaican music, it also provides a solid basis for a better understanding of much that has happened in music since.
