The artist Tavares Strachan represents The Bahamas in the nation’s inaugural pavilion at the 55th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia 2013. Curated by Jean Crutchfield and Robert Hobbs, Tavares Strachan conceived an immersive installation that includes different media such as neon signs, video, sculpture, and painting, and surrounds the viewer by documentation of a reenactment of a historic narrative: the 1909 polar expedition of Robert Peary and Matthew Alexander Henson. This video provides you with an exhibition walkthrough and a short interview with Tavares Strachan.
