EXPLORING SPIRITUALITY IN JAMAICA

by Bernard Jankee, Director, African Caribbean Institute of Jamaica/Jamaica Memory Bank

Thursday April 24, 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Free Admission


The presentation focuses on the cosmology and manifestations of spirituality in Jamaica, with special reference to the materials in the collections of the African Caribbean Institute of Jamaica/Jamaica Memory Bank. This collaborative effort forms part of the National Gallery of Jamaica’s Explorations II: Religion and Spirituality exhibition and public education program and is free to the public.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to view the National Gallery’s acclaimed Explorations II: Religion and Spirituality exhibition, which explores the role of religion and spirituality in Jamaican culture and history, by means of 68 works from the NGJ collections, some of them well known and others only rarely exhibited. The exhibition includes work by artists such as Osmond Watson, Edna Manley, Mallica “Kapo” Reynolds, Carl Abrahams, Everald and Clinton Brown, Renee Cox, Ebony G. Patterson, Gloria Escoffery, Norma Rodney-Harrack and Omari Ra. The exhibition is part of a new series that explores important themes in Jamaican art and the National Art Collection. Religion and Spirituality is scheduled to close on April 27.

The Exploring Spirituality presentation is part of the Institute of Jamaica’s Open House programme.
