 "Shakespeare in Paradise" from October 4-12, 2013
This year, Shakespeare in Paradise launches its 5th season and celebrates The Bahamas’ 40th year of independence with a poster art exhibition at Popopstudios International Centre for the Visual Arts. To recognize the role played by the visual artists of Young Artists’ Programme in creating the visual brand for the festival, this exhibition and catalogue have been produced. There has been a long tradition of poster art as a medium of promoting ideas, political or peaceful. In the 19th century posters became a medium for promoting not only ideas, but also theatre and cabaret—by such artists as Jules Cheret and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Twentieth century advertising grew out of this tradition. Fine artists such as Picasso and later other artists such as Andy Warhol uplifted poster art once more to an art form. Shakespeare in Paradise is happy to present this exhibition and hopes to carry on that tradition of promoting theatre through art. Read more:  and for further information: and
