The Art of Losing

04/07/2017 - 06/06/2017

'The Art of Losing' is based on the poem of the same name by Pulitzer Prize winning author Elizabeth Bishop.

The exhibition was part of Transforming Spaces art tour 2017, an annual art experience which includes all the leading galleries in Nassau.

'The Art of Losing' is inspired by Bishop's poetry, marrying the literary imagery of ther poem with
 visual moments in Bahamian Art. The selection of pieces contemplates the loss of time, material possessions, desire and loved ones. The viewer is encouraged to examine their perspective on how loss shapes our life experience,  and also find catharsis in the fact that loss is ever present, by seeing it plainly and discussing it candidly.
