We Suffer To Remain, 2018

In collaboration with the British Council, the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas will present the exhibition "We Suffer to Remain" featuring the evocative video installation "The Slave's Lament" by Scottish artist, Graham Fagen in tandem with visual responses by Bahamian artists Sonia Farmer, Anina Major and John Beadle.

Fagen’s “The Slave's Lament” was exhibited at Scotland at the Venice Biennale in 2015 and "We Suffer to Remain" premise focuses on the fact that artists in postcolonial spaces have strong and embryonic reactions that can influence and build on the advancement and celebration of de-colonial art practices.
