CONTACT TRACE by Angelika Wallace-Whitfield

We are delighted to announce the opening of CONTACT TRACE, a solo exhibition by Angelika Wallace Whitfield.

Wallace-Whitfield presents a series of paintings and drawings made during the Covid19 lockdowns. The work is a continuation of her interest in the female figure, in femininity and strength, but as the title suggests this body of work also focuses on contact and connection. Wallace-Whitfield describes in her own words how the illustration of connection between bodies was an exploration of what she experienced and questioned during the past year in the pandemic:

"As media coverage on COVID-19 increased, so did my knowledge on how the virus spreads. The way it travels from one human or object to the next, unknowingly, without intention. Human interaction becomes a vehicle. COVID-19 made me question the ways in which we impact everyone we are in contact with, physically, mentally, emotionally, in formative and reformative ways.

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.
