This assessment of Leon Wainwright's recent monograph, Timed Out: Art and the Transnational Caribbean (2011), focuses on the temporal dimensions of Caribbean art production and reception, including the reception of Caribbean art in the United Kingdom and United States as being “out of time” and behind the pace of modernity. In contrast, Wainwright's text argues for an understanding of Caribbean art as reflecting the immediacy of a Caribbean present, with its particular relation to the circulation of Caribbean works and artists between home and diaspora.
