Celebrating Bermuda Art Month

Artist Talk and Live Music

October saw the launch of Bermuda’s inaugural Art Month, hosted by the Bermuda Tourism Authority, in a celebration of the arts at cultural institutions across the island.

The opening event was held at BNG in collaboration with Gherdai Hassell who gave a talk about her practice in partnership with fellow former Bermuda Biennial artist Yesha Townsend celebration of both Art Month and the opening of Threads Unravelling, a new exhibition of her textile work on display in the BNG Project Space. 

We also held two live music sessions in the gallery with D.I.A and Friends who performed with special guests Icarus (KASE and Yesha Townsend) the first week.

The second week saw a special performance by Derek G. and Hana Bushara featuring Buzby in celebration of Derek’s album launch which dropped at midnight that night. Guests enjoyed bespoke cocktails by Alchemy Spirits inspired by the song titles.

We look forward to celebrating again next year for the second annual Bermuda Art Month!
