The NGJ is launching its call for entries to the 2010 National Biennial, the fourth edition of this biennial national exhibition which succeeded the Annual National Exhibition in 2004. This year’s biennial, the National Biennial IV, will be held from December 12, 2010 to March 5, 2011. As has become customary, the National Biennial IV will include special tributes to any artists who have been granted Musgrave medals in 2009 or 2010. There will also be a special tribute to the late Jamaican master Albert Huie, who passed away in 2010.
The exhibition comprises an invited and a juried section. The invited section accommodates artists who have, in the estimation of the NGJ’s Exhibitions Committee, achieved a significant record of achievement and national or international acclaim. The juried section is open to all Jamaican artists and all artists resident in Jamaica and selections will be made by a panel of judges appointed by the NGJ’s Exhibitions Committee. The rules and regulations of the exhibition are attached, along with the entry forms for the juried exhibition. Entries to the juried Invited artists will be notified and will receive their entry forms directly.
