The Ladder Gallery invites you to The Bahamas: Forgotten History, a debut exhibition by Bahamian artist Durelle Williams which opens on Friday, May 12th 2017 from 6:00pm at The Ladder Gallery.
Williams explores the Bahamian narrative by revisiting objects, people and traditions that remind us of our rich Afro-Caribbean heritage. The collection of traditional paintings and digital illustrations offer a glimpse into the social, cultural and political moments that have helped shape and define the Bahamian people as a nation. From the woman laboring in the field, to the poised junkanoo dancer, to a recreation of Sir Lynden Pindling throwing the mace on Black Tuesday Williams paints a collection of stories on reflection.
