Jamaican and British artists in “We have met before”


As a follow-up to our previous post We Have Met Before: National Gallery of Jamaica/, here is a reminder and a series of important links provided by Annalee Davis (Caribbean Arts Manager, British Council).

“We have met before” is a collaborative exhibition that the British Council has been working on, in partnership with the National Gallery of Jamaica. It includes work by two British and two Caribbean artists: Graham Fagen, Ingrid Pollard, Joscelyn Gardner and Leasho Johnson. The exhibition opened on Friday, September 22, and was followed by a panel conversation with the artists on Saturday, September 23, 2017. The show will be open until November 4th.

A third iteration of this project will take place in Nassau at the National Arts Gallery of the Bahamas from March to June 2018.
