THE ART OF LOSING

The “Art of Losing”, the first line from the epic poem by Pulitzer-prize winning author Elizabeth Bishop, immediately causes us to contemplate “what’s been lost” or, more gravely, “who did you lose?”   The poem also supplies the title of the D’Aguilar Art Foundation’s 2017 Transforming Spaces exhibition, featuring predominantly Bahamian paintings from the DAF Collection which explore loss, and depict related emotions including grief, frustration and anger.

RESIDUES OF A COLONIAL PAST

Participating NE8 artist, Edrin Symonette's exhibition "Residues of a Colonial Past" will be on view at the NAGB from April 1 - April 16, 2017 to coincide with Transforming Spaces 2017 weekend when the artist will be on site.

“Residues of a Colonial Past” explores the concept of beliefs, tradition and modalities left behind by colonization, in an attempt at reconstructing an identity. The word ‘residue’ can be defined as something left behind after a process - a bi-product of that process. This work seeks to simulate and highlight specific practices as they pertain to those living in the Caribbean diaspora, particularly The Bahamas, by examining the method and materials used in the construction process of a house prior to independence (1973).
