Artist Lecture: Rana Begum

Join London-based multimedia artist Rana Begum for an insightful talk at the Bermuda National Gallery on Thursday, August 17 as she discusses the works she currently has on display in Bermuda, both in Simplicity of Form: Unfolding Abstraction at Bermuda National Gallery and at the Hamilton Princess Hotel.

Citing Ellsworth Kelly, Sol LeWitt and both Josef and Anni Albers as inspiration, Begum’s work bridges painting, sculpture, architecture and design in a contemplation on the relationship between light, material, form, colour and space.

Rana Begum graduated with an MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art in 2002 and has exhibited at Tate St Ives (2018), Frieze Sculpture Park, London (2018) and The National Museum for Women in the Arts, Washington (2018). A solo show of her work, Reflections on Colour and Form, recently closed at the Christea Roberts Gallery, London.

Begum was elected to the Royal Academy in 2020 and co-curated the architectural section of the Royal Academy’s 2022 Summer Exhibition with architect Níall McLaughlin.

Tickets are $35 for BNG members and $50 for non-members. The event will take place on Thursday, August 17, with a reception at 5.30pm, followed by the lecture at 6pm.
