Current Exhibitions

BNG provides a national platform for Bermudian art and artists, presenting their work alongside international exhibitions. Private tours of current exhibitions can be arranged. Please call ahead to book in advance.

This exhibition, which is sponsored by Butterfield, presents a selection of photographs and a short film by the internationally renowned Bermuda-based marine researcher, photographer and filmmaker which underscore the importance of ocean conservation.

On through to end of September

Bringing together an unparalleled selection of works from the Green family collection by artists such as Frank Stella, Kenneth Noland and Bridget Riley, Simplicity of Form examines the development of abstract art and its seismic impact on contemporary Western Art.

On through to end of October

With an instinctive eye for framing the shot and playing with visual cues, Richard Saunders (Bermudian, 1922 -1987) applied an artist’s approach to documentary photography.  His striking black and white photographs  provide a unique way of seeing.

On through to mid-November

Opening in the BNG Project Space in October is Threads Unravelling, an exhibition by Bermudian artist Gherdai Hassell, who returns to BNG with new textile and collage works, continuing her visual exploration of identity through the lenses of language and history.
