Situated in the heart of Hamilton in the City Hall & Arts Centre, BNG houses Bermuda’s national art collection and connects the island’s community through art, culture and dialogue.
A dynamic exhibition space with an energetic staff and volunteer team, the Bermuda National Gallery hosts engaging exhibitions, events and programmes for all ages.
Admission is $5 for adults, free for BNG members, seniors, students and NARM members.
We will be opening two new exhibitions at the beginning of February. In celebration of our 30th anniversary year, we will be revisiting one of the Bermuda National Gallery's inaugural collections in Our People, Our Places, Our Stories: The African Collection, which will be displayed in the Humann and Young Galleries.
Part of of BNG's permanent collection, the African Collection was purchased by the people of Bermuda in 1996 and brings together 40 works representing 22 peoples from 12 countries in Sub-Saharan West Africa, ranging from ritual sculpture to masks and functional objects.
Alongside this, we will be presenting a small selection of striking works by French documentary photographer and film director Catherine de Clippel (above) focusing on the architecture and ritual practices of West Africa.
Opening in the Upper Mezzanine Gallery, Testing Boundaries: In the Studio with Nancy Valentine and Christina Hutchings looks at a diverse range of artworks created by a mother, Nancy Valentine (American/Bermudian, 1925-2019, above left), and daughter, Christina Hutchings (Bermudian, born 1953, above right), both former Bermuda Biennial artists and each a pioneering creative in her own right.
Testing Boundaries looks at the work of these two Bermudians, whose lives and studio practices are intertwined, and who each forged a unique path both as women and as interdisciplinary artists.
Our People, Our Places, Our Stories: The African Collection and Testing Boundaries: In the Studio with Nancy Valentine and Christina Hutchings will be on display from February through to June.
