John Cox, Baha Mar's Art Director, heads the new 'Current" Art Team, the unifying force behind Baha Mar's collective art moments across the luxury resort in The Bahamas. The team opened their first Art Gallery and Exhibition last evening, July 31 entitled: "Buildings Are People Too" that explores ideas about the nature of construction, particularly as it relates to the hotels at Baha Mar.
The exhibition explores notions behind the animation of development, the crossing and integration of cultures and the presence of individuals that cultivate exchanges and experiences throughout the construction process.
Two distinct bodies of work, stemming from separate perceptions—one made in response to experiencing the site from the inside and the other made exclusively from the perspective of an onlooker –will share a single space.
Through direct interviews with workers and use of material salvaged on site, Piaget Moss and Veronica Dorsett explore the grandeur of buildings and the moments of life they cloak, hoping to promote discourse about the delicate and typically unseen elements of construction.
