Jeffrey-Meris-S.jpg
As a component of the National Exhibition 8 (NE8), the PS Room will house three special projects starting with Jeffrey Meris' "Asue: 20/20".

"Asue: 20/20" is a series of participatory objects, experiences and interventions drawn from the Yorubic tradition. Meris invited 19 people throughout New Providence to interchange objects in response to a prompt or an object he creates.

Much like an economic asue, each week one person receives all twenty objects created/exchanged until the cycle is completed and all twenty participants...

NAGB Fall/Winter Film Series presents Inside Llewyn Davis - Nov 4, 2016 - 1:51:27 PM

FILM-SMALL.jpg
Nassau, Bahamas - On November 10th, the film series veers from the happy-go-lucky artist to the most familiar theme of the self-destructive artist. The individual who suffers in his or her quest to have their art become relevant.

Inside Llewyn Davis, a 2013 film co-directed by brothers Joel and Ethan Coen, follows the journey of a folk singer in the early 1960s in New York City as he attempts to build a career and a life. It’s a challenging film for the viewer in that the lead character, Llewyn Davis, played by the insanely watchable Oscar Isaac, seems bent on doing everything in his power not to have the career he so desperately wants...

Double Dutch brings together artists from the region and diaspora to produce provocative bodies of work through collaboration and exchange.
