About William Wegman: Around Bermuda | Masterworks Museum

Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art, in collaboration with William Wegman and his studio, are thrilled to announce the major exhibition William Wegman: Around Bermuda, opening to the public Saturday, May 13.

This exhibition centres around the Bermuda paintings of renowned American conceptual artist, William Wegman. Wegman's history with Bermuda dates to 2000, when he first visited the Island and began to create paintings and works on paper inspired by historic Bermuda postcards. Part of his larger postcard painting practice, Wegman employs postcards to create new, fascinating, and sometimes surreal views of familiar places. Around Bermuda will mark the first display of Masterworks Museum's significant acquisition of Wegman's monumental painting, also titled Around Bermuda, which acts as the focal point of the multifaceted exhibition.

Around Bermuda will feature artworks by Wegman dating from over 20 years as well as art from Masterworks' Permanent Collection, creating an intriguing dialogue between Wegman and other major artists which echoes across a period of over a century. Especially for Masterworks, Wegman has also created new works of art and an artist's book in celebration of Around Bermuda, both the work and the exhibition. As a unique opportunity for visitors, copies of this striking art book will be available for purchase from Masterworks' Arrowroot Shop. Suitable for all ages, the exhibition will also feature an educational and interactive display in the Mezzanine Gallery where visitors can learn about postcards and try their hand at making their own postcard art!
