Transforming Spaces 2019 Exhibition: POPOP FOREVER

To pay homage to their partnership in recent months, The Current has curated the newly renovated Popop Studios for Transforming Spaces 2019. The team invited Popop alumni artists to submit works that encompass the show’s theme POPOP FOREVER. Artworks within the exhibition reflect upon each artist’s time at Popop Studios: whether it be older works created at Popop, or more recent works that recall a style or series connoted with their time at Popop. Also included in the exhibition are artworks that make visual reference to Popop’s physicality, residents or the transformation process. Overall, this body of work reflects a system of sustainability within the art community over decades, while speaking to Popop’s role in facilitating the sustenance of numerous art practices and careers.

Transforming Spaces (TS) 2019 is gearing up for its annual art bus tour which will be taking place on Saturday and Sunday, April 6 and 7, with tickets available at the NAGB, Doongalik, and  The Place For Art.

Transforming Spaces 2019!

Transforming Spaces (TS) 2019 is gearing up for its annual art bus tour which will be taking place on Saturday and Sunday, April 6 and 7. Slated to be another inspiring art event, this year’s theme “Sustainability – I Have A Dream – I Am the Dream – We are the Dream” is already bearing fruit. Having started since September 2018, the theme will extend into the year 2020 to highlight the mission statement of one of TS’s founding members, the late Jackson Burnside, who stated that ‘by the year 2020, more persons will visit The Bahamas for its art, culture and heritage, rather than merely for its sun, sand and sea.”  TS Executives, master artist Antonius Roberts and Pam Burnside, are spearheading this multi-year project which has its roots within the Bahamian community.
