Jamaica Biennial 2017 – Special Projects: David Gumbs

Tomorrow (February 24 @ 7 pm) is the opening of the Jamaica Biennial 2017 at National Gallery West in Montego Bay, where David Gumbs’ Xing Wang project is featured. Here is a preview.

David Gumbs (1977, St Martin) studied at the Visual Arts School in Fort-de-France, Martinique, in 2001 and majored in interactive multimedia conception at Les Ateliers, L’ENSCI in Paris in 2002. His work has been shown nationally and internationally, including recently: Digital (2016), National Gallery of Jamaica; Video Islands (2015), Anthology Film Archives, New York; Transforming Spaces (2014), National Art Gallery of the Bahamas; Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival (2014); and the Martinique Biennial (2013), Fort-de-France. Since 2009, Gumbs teaches multimedia, transmedia and motion design at the Visual Arts School in Fort-de-France, Martinique. He “explores the unseen, the cycle of life, the nature within, and digital rhizome macroscopic universes, across a dynamic multimedia oeuvre, including painting, photography and experimental video.” Gumbs in 2016 participated in a Davidoff Initiative residency in Beijing, China, and his contribution to the Jamaica Biennial 2017 consists of an interactive video project titled Xing Wang (Blossoms), which he developed during that residence.
