Bermuda Biennial 2014: A View from the Edge The Bermuda Biennial is a platform for the Island’s contemporary art scene. Started in 1994, the exhibition continues to represent the vitality and creativity of local artists, and provides an opportunity for these artists to engage in an internationally juried process. Since 1998, Bacardi Limited has generously been the Signature Sponsor.  

For this year’s exhibition a theme was introduced. Artists were asked to address how the physical reality of an island informs one’s identity. To consider questions such as: How do we transcend restriction or embrace limitation? In what ways are we both bounded and connected, living in confinement and paradise, experiencing insularity and resilience?
