In January 2008, Popop Studios expanded its reach and facilities to accommodate resident artists, as well as an exhibition space. Popop became a self-sustaining entity of the Bahamian art community, providing exposure to students through its residency program while representing The Bahamas, and providing platforms for artists on an international level. Over the years Popop became home to so many, but in (insert year here) in the wake of hurricane Matthew, Popop became uninhabitable. Eleven years after it’s inception, Popop now takes on a new life. In lieu of a monetary compensation for artworks loaned by Dawn Davies to The Current for the Fairwind exhibition, funds totalling the value of the loaned artworks were designated for the renovation of Popop Studios.
Since we opened our doors in 1999, Popopstudios has been dedicated to the preservation and advancement of alternative Bahamian visual culture. Today we are still blazing new paths.
Over the past few months Popopstudios has welcomed Richardo Barrett, Alex Timchula and Tessa Whitehead as the newest artists occupying studios on the grounds.
