Island features in US art exhibition
An artist’s journey into his Bermuda roots is on display this month at the prestigious Whitney Museum of American Art in Manhattan, New York City.
American artist Cy Gavin appears in the Whitney Museum’s Between the Waters exhibition alongside several artists including Lena Henke and Demian DinéYazhi.
The show explores “the precarious state of the environment through a personal lens”, according to a Whitney Museum statement. Mr Gavin delves into the Bermuda landscape and his family roots on the island, into the experiences of his enslaved ancestors.
The painting The Future of Tucker’s Point references the slave cemetery and black community that once thrived on the resort’s land, imagining the site reclaimed by vegetation.
Reflecting on the subtle use of incorporated materials into his work, Mr Gavin told The Royal Gazette in 2016 that “the painting is a kind of time capsule or at times, a reliquary”.
