"Representation of the lesbian movement is touched upon only in as far as it coincides with the movement of homosexual men. The lesbian movement is characterized by other forms of criminalization of female homosexuality and discrimination against women. Closer to the women's movement from the beginning, it must be contextualized within feminist discourse. For this reason, the lesbian movement requires a separate presentation."

"This first monograph documents Addil Gosine's autobiographical and multidisciplinary exhibition wherein he explores the prelude and enduring aftermath of his family's move from Trinidad to Canada when he was a boy. The unifying icon in the exhibition is the Ixora. This delicate flower, which blooms throughout Trinidad, is in fact indigenous to India and parts of Asia. Gosine's ancestors, indentured labourers who came from India to Trinidad between the mid-19th and early 20th century after the abolishment of slavery, brought the flower with them to the Caribbean island, where it proliferated. Gosine in turn brings the Ixora to Canada as an offering to the people and experiences which shaped him. xhibition: Robert McLaughlin Gallery, Oshawa, Canada (13.01.-18.03.2018)." WorldCat
