The NGJ is pleased to announce the Jamaica Biennial 2014 exhibition, which is scheduled to open on November 14, 2014 — the NGJ’s fortieth anniversary date — and which will close on March 14, 2015. This is the first notification for the exhibition. There have been several major changes to the exhibition and the submission rules – please read the attached Biennial brochure 2014 very carefully.

About the Biennial

In 1977, NGJ inaugurated the Annual National Exhibition, which in its twenty-five year run established itself as the premier national art exhibition in Jamaica. In 2002, the Annual National Exhibition was converted into the National Biennial to favour a stronger exhibition, giving artists more time for the development of ideas and work. Effective 2014, the Biennial has been renamed as the Jamaica Biennial.
