The National Gallery of Jamaica’s Last Sundays programming for September 29th will feature a performance by MINORI and the inaugural NGJ Summer Exhibition 2019 will also be on view. This month’s staging is in association with the Institute of Jamaica’s Heritage Fest celebrations.
The NGJ Summer Exhibition 2019 consists of artwork from juried and invited artists from Jamaica and the diaspora to provide an inclusive and diverse showing of contemporary Jamaican art. The exhibition explores a wide variety of themes and concepts and displays a multitude of mediums in which they take form. It is also host to a number of emerging artists that we can look forward to seeing more work from in the future.
‘She strives to be all that she dreams‘ is the mantra of the Jamaican singer, MINORI. MINORI’s music possesses a deep power & soul, her fusion of Reggae, Hip Hop, Trip Hop, RNB and Dancehall, delivering a message of trial and triumph. Her latest single RED PILL was released early this month, the inspiration of which came from the monumental movie The Matrix, where the RED PILL represents exposure to truth beneath the lies & illusion that surrounds us.
Doors will open to the public from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. The performance by MINORI will begin at 1:30 p.m. As is customary on Last Sundays, admission and guided tours are free, but contributions to the Donations Box located in the Coffee Shop are appreciated. These donations help to fund our Last Sundays events. The National Gallery’s Gift Shop and Coffee Shop will also be open for business.
