Current Exhibition

A Burning for Home

For Transforming Spaces 2020, The D’Aguilar Art Foundation will present artwork from Abaco-based artists. The exhibition, entitled “A Burning for Home”, brings together Leanne Russell, Ivanna Gaitor, Attila Feszt, Androo Carey, Martysta Turnquest, Adrian Whylly and Yasmin Glinton, artists that were directly affected by Hurricane Dorian.

Yasmin Glinton is acting as the guest curator for The D’Aguilar Art Foundation gallery, a space that is normally curated by the in-house team of Saskia D’Aguilar and Tessa Whitehead. Glinton explained she wants to pull together various narratives to examine the multifaceted meaning of the word home, in particular how the connotation of that word has been impacted as a result of the hurricane.

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.
