The D’Aguilar Art Foundation, launched in 2008, is the culmination of Vincent D’Aguilar’s vision for Bahamian art. One of the most comprehensive privately held art collections in The Bahamas, the Foundation is an educational resource for artists, scholars, collectors, students and the general public. Operating out of a multi-functional exhibition, educational and archival space, we strive to involve members of the public in the ideas and discourse of Bahamian artists.  

Current Exhibition

This is Yours, That is Mine

The D'Aguilar Art Foundation is pleased to present 'This is Yours, That is Mine', a presentation of new works by Jeffrey Meris and Tessa Whitehead. Both artists examine fragments of the landscape as a record of the ruins of history and a demonstration of desire, power and surrender. Meris exhibits drawings and sculptures that examine the literal and physical street as a binding space for black culture and a stage for trauma. Whitehead's paintings and objects of unkept landscapes are an inquiry into failure and surrender. More Info »
