The work of the native Antiguan and Barbudan artist Frank Walter (1926–2009) encompasses numerous paintings, drawings, sculptures and writings, some of which will be on view in a museum for the first time.
The works by John Akomfrah, Khalik Allah, Kader Attia, Marcel Broodthaers, Birgit Hein, Isaac Julien, Julia Phillips, Howardena Pindell and Rosemarie Trockel revolve around colonialism in the Caribbean in the past and present as well as the intellectual contexts of colonial and post-colonial thought. They address the visual regime of racism that also finds expression in the exoticizing gaze, and describe the complexities of identity, class and racialization. Julien Creuzet, Kapwani Kiwanga and Carolyn Lazard have produced new works specifically for the show.
Frank Walter’s work was the sole subject of Antigua and Barbuda’s inaugural national pavilion at Venice Biennale in 2017. This 6-month long exhibition was supported by the Minister of Culture, Director of Culture, Cultural Envoy, and the Governor General of Antigua and Barbuda.
Curator: Barbara Paca.
