The Architecture of Community by Nastassia Pratt

We are delighted to host a solo exhibition by Nastassia Pratt entitled 'The Architecture of Community'

It is a particularly apt time to view Pratt's meticulous watercolor and assemblages of Bahamian homes. Having just endured Hurricane Dorian and witnessed homes fracture or disappear, the future of our architectural design seems undetermined. Pratt's work offers an historical perspective by depicting the exterior of some of the oldest buildings in Nassau and the out-islands. One of the things that draws the artist to document these specific spaces is that they were built with community in mind:

"The aesthetic of these kinds of homes is a dying one and I hope to celebrate them. By nature of how these buildings are designed they encourage community and I hope to continue highlighting these neighborhoods and homes to encourage Bahamians to look back to our architectural history for its common-sense approach to community living and planning.

About Us

The D’Aguilar Art Foundation, launched in 2008, is the culmination of Vincent D’Aguilar’s vision for Bahamian art. One of the most comprehensive privately held art collections in The Bahamas, the Foundation is an educational resource for artists, scholars, collectors, students and the general public. Operating out of a multi-functional exhibition, educational and archival space, we strive to involve members of the public in the ideas and discourse of Bahamian artists.
