Cayman 27 – ARCHIVE

Cayman’s African roots explored

Director and Chief Curator at the National Gallery Natalie Urquhart is launching the book “The Art of the Cayman Islands.” The book contains explanations and recollection of Cayman’s artwork to-date.

“A big element of the history that we haven’t really learnt in school yet in great detail is Cayman’s African history and a lot of our contemporary artist are starting to grapple with that story and source information to bring that out into the community there are multiple viewpoints that are just slowly starting to emerge in history as we as a country start gathering this material and putting it down on paper so I think you’ll see some of those stories explored through the artist,” Mrs. Urquhart explained.

The book launch will begin tomorrow (Oct 26) at the National Gallery. All are invited to attend.
