2022 Bermuda Biennial

Applications Close Jan 31

2022 Bermuda Biennial

Calling all artists!

The deadline for submission to the 2022 Bermuda Biennial is January 31. This year, all applications must be submitted online.

Generously sponsored by Bacardi Limited since its inception, the Bermuda Biennial has for the past 30 years provided a uniquecultural cornerstone for our contemporary artists and shines an international spotlight on our people, our places, our stories and our future.

The theme for this year is A New Vocabulary: Past. Present. Future. Artists can submit up to 5 artworks across different mediums. In celebration of our anniversary, we are this year opening applications up to include a poetry category and encourage proposals for public artworks.

As with every Biennial, the calibre of our international jurors is one of the key components that stands this exhibition apart. The 15th Bermuda Biennial will be juried by Claire Gilman, Chief Curator at The Drawing Center in New York and Alexandria Smith, Head of Painting at the Royal College of Art in London. Richard Georges, the first Poet Laureate of the British Virgin Islands, will be the juror for the poetry component.

As we take stock of the seismic societal shifts that have taken place since the last Bermuda Biennial and approach our 30th year in reflection upon the Bermuda National Gallery’s past, present and future, we turn it over to you, our artists, to write a new vocabulary.
