Popopstudios Takes Bahamian Art To The World

By in Featured, News on February 29, 2016


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.

We are officially a non-profit organization and our connection to the visual arts culture of The Bahamas is even deeper and our reach is global.

From March 2-6, more than 45,000 people are expected to attend the art fair to see artists represented by 100 galleries from around the world

Contemporary painter and sculptor Tessa Whitehead is our featured artist for this edition of Volta and we couldn’t be prouder.

Not only will Tessa’s groundbreaking solo show at a major international art fair be a first for Bahamian female artists, but also the mixed media work on display will offer a fresh perspective on contemporary art.
