The NAGB was pleased to present ‘R. Brent Malone: Reincarnation’ – a retrospective exhibition spanning the entire gallery, which featured more than 250 paintings, drawings, prints and sculptural pieces by late artist Brent Malone.

The show was curated by Dr. Erica James, former NAGB director and current assistant professor in Yale University’s department of art history and African American studies. The exhibition covered 50 years of Malone’s professional development. A comprehensive overview, the exhibition told the story of an art evolution alongside the ebbs and flows Malone experienced over the course of his career. The show comprised of works sourced from collections throughout The Bahamas and further afield — including a loan from the National Gallery of Jamaica. The earliest work on view was completed when Malone was just a 13-year-old boy, in 1954. Paintings from 2004, just before he died, completed the final body of work.
