When was the last time you visited the Barbados National Museum and historical Society?

Well it has definitely moved on since that school trip you took when you were 10 years old.

A great excuse to visit the National Museum in the Garrison is the new art exhibition by their artist-in-residence, Ingrid Persaud, who has made a series of works based on her research into the archives of the Museum’s collections. The exhibition, called You Go Down The Ladder, I’ll Shine The Torch, features sound, installations, etchings and photography. You can also read the diaries of those who participated in Make Today History web project.

The show is on now until 20 June.

On June 9, 2008 from 6:30 ? 9:30pm the art collective that Ingrid belongs to, 21 x 14, (Ewan Atkinson, Annalee Davis and Joscelyn Gardner) will be hosting an informal seminar to discuss the work and issues arising out from being an artist in a museum.

Please join us on Monday June 9 for a fun evening of stimulating discussion. Some refreshments will be provided but any drinks or snacks you care to bring will be much appreciated.
