O’Neil Lawrence is the new Chief Curator of the National Gallery of Jamaica. Lawrence will oversee the Gallery’s exhibitions and be responsible for the development of Jamaica’s national art collection.
Chairman of the board, Senator Tom Tavares-Finson says: “His wide depth of knowledge of Jamaican and Caribbean art will serve him well as he begins this stage of his career. His curatorial skills have been honed under many Jamaican and international curators including the late Chief Curator, the Hon. Dr David Boxer O.J. The Board of the NGJ joins me in welcoming our new Chief Curator and we look forward to great new developments at the NGJ.”
