“Last Sundays” on Jan 28, 2018” feat. EarthKry and
'Explorations V and VI' at NGJ
Exhibition Event: “Last Sundays” Programme on January 28, 2018 featuring 'Explorations V: Portraits in Conversation' and 'Explorations VI: Engaging Abstraction' exhibitions @ 11:00am to 4:00pm and performance by EarthKry @ @ 1:30pm at NGJ — Jamaica, WI; Event Details – Where: National Gallery of Jamaica; Location: 12 Ocean Blvd, Block C, Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies (Entrance is on Orange Street); Tel: 1-876-922-1561, 1-876-922-1563; Fax: 1-876-922-8544; E-mail: info@natgalja.org.jm; Opening hours: Tues-Thurs: 10am to 4:30pm; Fri: 10am-4pm; Sat: 10am-3pm; Last Sundays: the NGJ is open every last Sunday of the month, normally 11am-4pm
Event Description: “The National Gallery of Jamaica’s Last Sundays programme for the month of January will feature a special musical performance by the EarthKry band. Visitors will also be able to view editions V and VI in our Explorations exhibition series, 'Portraits in Dialogue' and 'Engaging Abstraction.' January 28 will also mark the reopening of the Kapo Galleries. The EarthKry band, featuring keyboard player Phillip Mcfarlane, drummer Kieron Cunningham, bass guitarist Kamardo Blake and vocalist/guitarist Aldayne Haughton, continues their mission to voice the grievances of the downtrodden through their music. Drawing their inspiration from Bob Marley and The Wailers, The Beatles, John Holt, Black Uhuru and Steel Pulse, the group offers a genre-spanning fresh and universal sound ... Visitors will have the opportunity to view the National Gallery’s current exhibitions, 'Explorations V: Portraits in Conversation' and 'Explorations VI: Engaging Abstraction.' The featured performance will be by the Nexus Performing Arts Company. The Explorations exhibition series, which was launched in 2013, explores big themes and issues in Jamaican art and features mainly works from the National Gallery Collection, which are reinterpreted in these thematic contexts. 'Explorations V: Portraits in Conversation' examines the significance and conflicted politics of artistic portraiture in the development of Jamaican art from the 18th century to the present, looking at issues such as race, class, gender, as well as the ideas about art and the artist that are reflected in the portrait. Its counterpart, 'Explorations VI: Engaging Abstraction,' examines the at times contentious role of abstraction in modern and contemporary art from Jamaica and the Caribbean. Abstraction became an established part of the local art practice in the 1960s but is often dismissed as alien to Caribbean culture, which has a strong focus on content and iconic local subject matter. More recently, abstraction has also found new life in the age of time-based, digital media. A special feature in the 'Explorations VI' exhibition is the Kingston staging of David Gumbs’ Xing Wang interactive video installation, which was originally shown as part of the 2017 Jamaica Biennial at National Gallery West in Montego Bay ... This Last Sundays will also see the reopening of the Kapo Galleries which celebrate the work of Jamaica’s foremost Intuitive artist Mallica 'Kapo' Reynolds ... Admission on Sunday, January 28, 2018 will be free and free guided tours will also be offered. The gift and coffee shop will be open for business and contributions to the donations box are welcomed. Revenues from our shops and donations help to fund programmes such as the 'Explorations' exhibitions and our Last Sundays programming ...”Read more: National Gallery of Jamaica Blog

About the Venue: “The Queen’s Park Gallery first played a significant role in the development of Visual Arts in Barbados, since it was traditionally a venue for the Visual Arts displays during the Annual Agricultural and Industrial Exhibition. This continued when it was one of the exhibition venues for CARIFESTA Visual Arts in 1981 and later became a full time gallery. Queen’s Park is unique in that it provides the services of a curator, gallery attendants, a guard, the organization and publicity of the exhibition with the Gallery taking a commission on sales. This facility has allowed many artists, who would not otherwise have been able to mount exhibitions and sell their work, to do so. The Gallery plays a major role in the development of the Visual Arts in several ways. One of these ways is in having a Curator, who consistently meets with artists to view and discuss their work, offering technical and aesthetic advice. This contributes in a strong measure to the sustainability of a local Art Market ...”Read more: Queen's Park Gallery

About Barbados Sailing Week: “The race around Barbados dates back to the 19th century and is based upon bragging rights for the fastest 'Trading Schooner.' This was a prize worth its weight in gold to captains in an era where prices for cargo arriving ahead of rival ships commanded a massive premium. Whilst most boats sailed for the honor of the fastest time, the consolation prize of a barrel of Mount Gay Rum for the slowest certainly spurred on some captains, and had to be discontinued after two boats remained out at sea for days stalling to take the prize ...”Read more: Barbados Sailing Week-Tradition
