Queens in Exile | 29 Nov 17 – 27 Jan 18 
WHATIFTHEWORLD is pleased to present Queens in Exile –  a major solo exhibition of new work by Athi-Patra Ruga.

Queens in Exile is about telling better stories. This isn’t simply a revisionist exercise, patching up inconvenient holes in the historical record. Instead, Ruga excavates collective memory and exclusionary national myth to rebuild both in wholly new shapes – to make a world where the exiled can reign. The result is a land of many queens, lost and found and forgotten.

The literal meaning in the bucket has no relation but you may see many buckets on the premises to keep guests guessing.

The Thirsty Oyster Tavern
Legend has it that old Rasta on the Roof found this shipwreck in the Old Harbour and turned it into a pub and restaurant called ‘The Thirsty Oyster Tavern’, where, to quote him, ‘home is where the anchor drops’. So why not drop anchor here for a while, crack open that careworn shell and slip into our relaxed and friendly ambiance – whether it be in the cool breezes of summer or by the warm, cosy fires in winter – we have 3 fireplaces to ensure you stay nice and warm. And that infamous South Easter? Don’t fuss! We’re pretty sheltered, tucked in as we are, between the Naval College and the National Sea Rescue facility. Their events are listed on their Facebook page.

Courses, Programmes & Workshops
Drawing Workshop Exhibition
Greatmore Studios’ First Exhibition of 2018. The Drawing Workshop Exhibition, Opening 10th January 2018. Closes 24th January 2018.

A three-day open drawing workshop was initiated towards the end of December 2017.
The space was open to anyone who needed to draw with others. There was no objective or discussion as everyone simply fell into doing their work, coming and going, commenting occasionally. The exhibition has been selected from work made during the three days. It is a workshop exhibition in that their work is open and directly made with good hands and hearts in the spirit of learning/teaching by example.
