NAGB - Nassau Airport Development (NAD) Project
CALL FOR ARTWORKS
As a platform of entry to the Bahamas the Sir Lynden Pindling International Airport is a vital component and first impression of our country. The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas (NAGB) is responsible for curating 12 display cases within the international departure and arrival corridors.
The NAGB is interested in exploring and exhibiting Bahamian Fine Art and aim to ensure that our exhibit leaves a lasting mark on locals and visitors alike. The NAD Project consists of six-month turnover exhibition spaces and is geared towards three-dimensional artworks. However, this year we are willing to include two-dimensional works where displaying them can be addressed. Under the theme ‘Impressions and Perceptions of People’ we hope that artists will delve into what defines the Bahamian people, our culture, how we interact with each other and our environment, and relevant economic and social situations. This theme can be taken as literally and/or figuratively as you would like.
We hope to fill each individual case with an artist’s work and we have a total of 12 available as of yet. The NAGB will assume responsibility for the design and layout of the display cases. The dimensions of the spaces are on the image below.
