Guided Tour | Frank Walter Exhibition

Guided Tour | Frank Walter Exhibition

Xavier Hufkens is proud to present an exhibition dedicated to the work of Antiguan painter, sculptor, writer, philosopher, and true Renaissance man, Frank Walter (1926-2009).

Curated by Barbara Paca, OBE and Nina Khrushcheva, the presentation charts the physical, emotional and socio-cultural trajectories of Walter’s life as he travels — both literally and figuratively — between two distinct worlds: that of the Caribbean and Northern Europe. His fierce intellect, political awareness, connection to nature and capacity for cosmic thought are all brought to the fore, revealing him as a polymath who, in the eyes of many, was born ahead of his time. Frank Walter largely worked in seclusion in middle age, meaning his ideas, writings and art were never fully appreciated during his lifetime. A radical reappraisal of his legacy in the decade since his death, however, has brought his work to a wider international audience. Today, Walter is recognised as being one of the most complex and visionary chroniclers of the twentieth century.
