Event Description: “The National Gallery of Jamaica’s Last Sundays programme for April 30, 2017 will feature the 'Jamaica Biennial 2017' exhibition and a screening of the film documentary, 'Shashamane, On the Trail of The Promised Land.' The film explores the narratives of a number of settlers of African-descent from across the world, who have been living in Shashamane – a 200-hectare plot of land in Ethiopia, located 250 km south of Addis Ababa. The land was donated to all blacks in the world by the Emperor of Ethiopia Hailé Selassie in 1950. Ras Mweya Masimba is one of the key characters in the film, he moved to Shashamane in 1990. He is an English-born artist of Jamaican origins who depicts the deeds of his people in his animated films. Today African descendants from around the world — France, Jamaica, the United States, the United Kingdom, and various Caribbean islands – live in Shashamane. All of them were motivated by the desire for self-affirmation, after centuries of humiliation, and a longing to bring up their children in a nurturing context devoid of racism, making of tangible reality of the famous 'Exodus' sung by Bob Marley ... Visitors will be able to view the critically acclaimed 'Jamaica Biennial 2017' which opened in late February 2017 at three locations: the National Gallery of Jamaica on the Kingston waterfront, Devon House in New Kingston and National Gallery West in Sam Sharpe Square, Montego Bay. Featuring a diverse mix of locally and overseas based artists, some of them well known and others emerging or new, the 2017 edition of the 'Jamaica Biennial' reflects the vitality of the Jamaican art scene and the complex global dynamics that shape the art of the Caribbean region today. As was first done in 2014, the 'Jamaica Biennial' features six specially invited international artists, from the Caribbean and its Diaspora—Jodie Lyn-Kee-Chow, Raquel Paiewonsky, Marcel Pinas, Nadia Huggins at the National Gallery of Jamaica; Andrea Chung at Devon House; and David Gumbs at National Gallery West—and the exhibition also includes two special tributes to noted Jamaican artists—Alexander Cooper and Peter Dean Rickards, both of which can be viewed at the National Gallery of Jamaica. The exhibition includes work in conventional media and styles as well as more experimental work in digital and other contemporary media, including several mixed media installations. The largest and arguably the most ambitious such exhibition staged to date by the National Gallery, the 'Jamaica Biennial' runs at all three locations until May 28, 2017 ...”Read more: National Gallery of Jamaica Blog

Contact Info – Phone: +1 246-621-0067; Email: gallerynuedge@galerienuedge.com
About the Artist: “Although trained in English art schools, my 'art vocabulary' was developed in the West Indian landscape. I drew in Barbados and Guyana where the rural environment became my inspiration and my subject. As the subject was familiar and not "difficult", I was free to pursue my own interpretations and impose my ideas, which have changed through many phases.  When I arrived in Barbados 40 years ago, I saw reminders of England in cultivated cane fields and plantation houses beneath avenues of royal palms. This interest changed to exploring the gullies, formed by collapses of caves in a limestone landscape. I showed the moon with its energy animating masculine trunks. The moon positions in the composition became like the final square in a board game. The focus of my painting and my life has narrowed and simplified lately. Current works are often single trees, or plants.  A Christmas palm in my garden is often seen up close, drawn from observation, and records changes in light or growth.”Read more: Alison Chapman-Andrews Bio
