RECAP & ANNOUNCEMENT:
Friday, August 26, 2022 marked the successful staging of Part 2 of the 4-Part Kingston Biennial 2022: Pressure Film Screening Series, curated by Storm Saulter, with venue at Official Hotel Partner, AC Hotel Kingston.
Featuring Jamaican premieres of films ‘Winston’ by Tanya Taylor, and ‘Right Near the Beach’ by Gibrey Allen, the audience was led to assess how the Jamaican society, deals with loss, heinous crimes and more specifically, hate crimes.
The post-analysis was conducted by Isis Semaj-Hall and based on audience participation we believe that the intent of each film was appreciated and embraced.
The National Gallery of Jamaica was honoured to have these films showcased under the Kingston Biennial Pressure theme.
Be sure to mark Friday, September 30th on your calendars for Part 3 of the Pressure Film Screening Series, with RSVPs being taken as early as Friday, September 23, via Eventbrite only.
Kingston Biennial 2022: Pressure is an art exhibition at the National Gallery of Jamaica, featuring the works of 24 local and diaspora artists around the Jamaican idiom ‘Pressure.’
