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

He was on a number of occasions between 2003 and 2009, a Visiting Professor at Emory University, Atlanta.

Through a convergence of interest in anthropology, science fiction, black female subjectivity and women's work; her art explores the humor and fantasy involved in self-making within diasporic societies, which have an ability to live with cultural ambiguities and use them to build psychological and even metaphysical defenses against cultural invasions.

Event Description: “The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas has extended until Sunday, July 29, 2018 'We Suffer To Remain,' a collaborative exhibition with the British Council, features Scottish artist Graham Fagen’s Venice Biennale project 'A Slave’s Lament' together with the work of invited Bahamian artists Sonia Farmer, John Beadle and Anina Major, who have been asked to respond to this historic reggae soundclash. This exciting collaborative moment looks at the vestiges and historical significance of slavery and its impacts on postcolonial societies ... and the accompanying collection, 'Traversing the Picturesque: For Sentimental Value,' is a historical survey showcasing works from the end of the 18th century through 1960, detailing the significance and the lasting power of the colonial gaze in relation to The Bahamas and the wider Caribbean. As a two-part survey, this segment will show over 100 critical works—most never seen by the public—borrowed from several prominent national and international collectors ...

Event Description: “The National Gallery of Jamaica (NGJ) is pleased to announce the homecoming of the exhibition 'John Dunkley: Neither Day nor Night' April 29-July 29, 2018 after its eight-month run at the Pérez Art Museum in Miami (PAMM) where it was hailed as one of 'the most exciting museum shows around the US in 2017.' Little in the history of Western art prepares us for Dunkley, wrote the late Dr David Boxer (1946-2017), Dunkley historian and curatorial advisor to PAMM. 'There is a hypnotic rhythmic intensity in Dunkley’s paintings that is alien to English and American masters,' John Dunkley (b. 1891, Savanna-la-Mar — d. 1947, Kingston) is considered one of Jamaica’s first and finest ‘Intuitive’ or self-taught artists and the title of the show is a reference to his work’s idiosyncratic mood and palette: detailed, haunting imageries of landscapes, with psychologically and psycho-sexually suggestive underpinnings. Though a selection of Dunkley’s work is on permanent display at the NGJ, only 50 paintings by Dunkley exist in the world. The exhibition’s return home then gives local audiences the rare opportunity to see this collection of thirty-four (34) paintings and nine (9) sculptures together for the first time since the NGJ Retrospective of his work in 1976. ...”Read more: National Gallery of Jamaica Blog
