Event Description: “NE8 participating artist Jeffrey Meris will have Open Studios and an informal artist talk at the NAGB on Saturday, January 21st, 2017 from 4pm-6pm. As a component of the National Exhibition 8 (NE8), the PS Room will house three special projects starting with Jeffrey Meris' 'Asue: 20/20.' 'Asue: 20/20' is a series of participatory objects, experiences and interventions drawn from the Yorubic tradition. Meris invited 19 people throughout New Providence to interchange objects in response to a prompt or an object he creates.

This cultural practice of communal saving is quickly dissipating from The Bahamas and the Caribbean Diaspora ... Join us on Saturday, Jan 21st from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. for an informal artist talk and an open studios session where the artist will speak about the genesis of the work with his collaborators ...”Read more: NAGB Event-Asue: 20/20
