In looking to the Caribbean as a space of diverging and converging spiritualities, "Medium" gives us a moment to look at The Bahamas' culture as a multi-faith space as opposed to the "Christian Nation" narrative. We have Christians of all denominations, but also Rastafarianism, Obeah, West African spirituality, and the healing bush-medicine magic of the natural world. Featuring the work of intuitive artists and modern and contemporary artists alike, the 33 artists take us on a journey through the metaphysical, the divine, and religious and spiritual critique. Curated by NAGB Chief Curator Holly Bynoe.
