Temporary Closure

BNG Open Online

As matter of care for the health and safety of our volunteers, visitors and staff amidst the growing concerns around the spread of Covid-19, our physical space is temporarily closed until further notice. However, BNG remains open online where we have launched a new exhibition as well as a public art project in Hamilton!

We are closely monitoring the evolving situation and will re-open as soon as we feel that it is safe to do so. In the meantime, please keep in touch on instagram and we hope that you continue to enjoy our fortnightly arts newsletter

If you’re in town, keep an eye for two new murals which are being installed for the Peaceful Art Protest Mural Project, a collaboration between BNG and the Corporation of Hamilton‘s VIVID Public Art Initiative as part of the programming for the 2020 Bermuda Biennial Let Me Tell You Something. 

Dennis Joaquin works on one of the Peaceful Art Protest murals on Front Street.

The Peaceful Art Protest was launched by former Biennial artist Rachel Swinburne earlier this year in response to the Black Lives Matter movement as a way for artists of all ages to express their solidarity through art.

The artwork above is based on a photograph taken by Meredith Andrews  which is being translated into a mural by Dennis Joaquin on Front Street, near No. 1 Carpark.

A second mural, created by primary school children, will be installed at the top of Queen Street, near City Hall.
