Event Description: “The National Gallery of the Cayman Islands (NGCI) opens a new contemporary art exhibition titled 'Looking Back and Thinking Ahead' featuring artist Simon Tatum. Graduating with an undergraduate degree in visual art from the University of Missouri this summer, the showcase draws from Tatum’s final thesis project as well as his experience participating in the Caribbean Linked residency this past August in Aruba. 'Thanks to the support from NGCI, I was able to travel and work in Aruba with Caribbean artists, curators and residency staff all influencing the works in this showcase,' says Tatum. The body of work examines Caymanian cultural identity through two-dimensional print installations displayed in the NGCI Community Gallery, as well as fourteen three-dimensional 'memory tanks' displayed in the NGCI Sculpture Gardens ... The exhibition opens to the public Thursday, 25 May 2017 and runs until Thursday, 15 June 2017. Admission is free.” — Read more: National Gallery Cayman-Looking Back & Thinking Ahead and National Gallery Cayman-Facebook
