The Tenth National Exhibition (NE:10): “MERCY”, curated by John Cox, debuts on Thursday, October 6th, 2022, at the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas. The exhibition runs from Thursday, October 6th, 2022 – Sunday, January 2nd, 2023.
Mercy is a perennial and universal theme in human history, including in religion and spirituality, philosophy and ethics, and literature and the arts.
NE 10 is a nationwide opportunity for collaboration within a diverse selection of Bahamian artists, creatives and storytellers to reflect on the concept and practice of mercy, evoking both personal and collective historical experience. NE 10 serves as a litmus test of what “is” and “could be” in the context of the many signs, features, and currents that mark the times in which we are living and through which we are moving, both at home and abroad. The participating creatives push us to consider what mercy is and can be, through a range of media from painting to installation. The artists reflect on mercy as a form of natural empathy, but also as a response to national and global events.
The participating artists include: Melissa Alcena, Gabrielle Banks, Delton Barrett, John Beadle, Jason Bennett, Sue Bennett-Williams, Ian Bethel Bennett, Chantal Bethel, April Bey, Lillian Blades, Dede Brown, Carla Campbell, Cydne Coleby, June Collie, Adrian D’Aguilar, Claudette Dean, Sonia Farmer, Tyrone Ferguson, Kendra Frorup, Guilden Gilbert, Yasmin Glinton, Kendal Hanna, Sue Katz, KEEYA, Jordanna Kelly, Dominique Knowles, Kachelle Knowles, Scharad Lightbourne, Toby Lunn, Brent Malone, Candis Marshall, Jodi Minnis, Lavar Munroe, Holly Parotti, Lynn Parotti, Matthew Rahming, Antonius Roberts, Leanne Russell, Steven Schmid, Heino Schmid, Gio Swaby, Edrin Symonette, Neil Symonette, Keith Thompson, Samantha Treco, Allan Wallace, Angelika Wallace Whitfield, Drew Weech, Jessica Whittingham, Averia Wright, and Lemero Wright.
