Event Description: “The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas is pleased to invite you to a public lecture by cultural critic, writer and professor Eddie Chambers on Thursday, June 21st, 2018 starting at 7pm. With so much of the New World being built on enslavement, it’s not surprising that slavery’s legacies should continue to exercise so many artists, not only of the Caribbean region, but also those of what we might call the Caribbean diaspora. These artists visualise slavery in an astonishingly broad range of ways, and one particularly fascinating aspect of this visualisation are the ways in which visual articulations of enslavement act as a means of animating decidedly contemporary challenges. Caribbean artists are extraordinarily adept at making innovative, challenging, aesthetically cogent work, and a notable strand of this is work that turns its attention to the formidable and ongoing task of visualizing slavery and its multiple legacies. In this regard, 'We Suffer to Remain' is very much a textured, layered, multi-faceted manifestation of artists grappling with slavery and its legacies. This talk will present and discuss various examples of the ways in which artists of the Caribbean and its diasporas have responded to the challenges of visualizing slavery. Among the artists whose work is to be included in the talk are Charles Campbell (Jamaica/Canada), Terry Boddie (Saint Kiits and Nevis/USA), and Tam Joseph (Dominica/UK) ...”Read more: The NAGB-Facebook and The NAGB

Born in Savanna-la-Mar, Dunkley was of the generation of Jamaicans who travelled to Panama, Costa Rica and Cuba at the beginning of the 20th Century seeking opportunities for work and advancement. His moody paintings and whimsical sculptures reflect his life, experiences and views on Jamaica’s fledgling nationalist movement. The National Gallery’s version of the exhibition, which opened on April 29 and closes on July 29, contains important new work not shown at PAMM ... Doors will open to the public from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. Storytelling by Amina Blackwood-Meeks will begin at 1:30 p.m followed by Anomaly’s performance.
