Neue Rootz - Gertrud


Jamaica’s premier national art exhibition, the 2010 National Biennial, which will open at the National Gallery of Jamaica on December 12, 2010.

The National Biennial in 2004 succeeded the NGJ’s Annual National Exhibition, which had been held annually since 1977. In its current form, the National Biennial consists of an invited section, to which artists with an already well-established track record are invited by the NGJ to submit work, and a juried section, which is open to all Jamaican artists and all artists living in Jamaica and selected by a panel of judges representative of major stakeholders in the local artistic community.

Artists participating in the exhibition qualify for the prestigious Aaron Matalon Award for the best entry by a single artist and may also be considered for acquisition awards.

The 2010 National Biennial will continue until March 5, 2011.
