Frank Walter at Pavilion of Antigua and Barbuda - Venice Biennale

Frank Walter: The Last Universal Man 1926–2009
Pavilion of Antigua and Barbuda
57th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia
13 May–22 November 2017
Curated by Barbara Paca, Ph.D.

Frank Walter: The Last Universal Man 1926–2009 marks Antigua and Barbuda’s inaugural representation at the 57th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. The exhibition invites visitors into the world of Caribbean artist Frank Walter through a selection of his paintings, sculpture, audio recordings, and writing—as well as through video exploration of his entire oeuvre. The Last Universal Man also represents a posthumous fulfilment of Walter’s intention to open his house and studio as a centre for art.

Fittingly situated in the tranquil setting of central Venice’s fifteenth-century monastery, Don Orione Artigianelli, the exhibition extends outdoors to an Antiguan garden. This sets the contemplative mood of Walter’s artistic retreat and paradisus terrestris, which he built above the southern Antiguan coastline in the last decades of his life. The artwork that once filled Walter’s house and studio is inextricable from his postcolonial experience. Yet the issues he engaged with—such as identity, memory, and environment—still resonate today.

Frank Walter at Harewood House, Leeds

Frank Walter
Flamboyant Trees

30 June – 29 October 2017
Harewood House, Leeds

This summer Harewood House Trust will present a major solo exhibition by Antiguan artist Frank Walter, with support from Ingleby Gallery.

Frank Walter (Francis Archibald Wentworth Walter), self-styled '7th Prince of the West Indies, Lord of Follies and the Ding-a-Ding Nook', was born in Antigua in 1926. Walter was hugely talented as an artist and writer, although somewhat flawed by an obsession with his ancestral lineage which he believed linked him with the aristocratic families of Europe including Charles II (through his mistress Lucy Walter), Franz Joseph of Austria and the Dukes of Buccleuch.

Coinciding with a major solo presentation of Walter's work at the 57th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, Flamboyant Trees at Harewood House comprises over 60 paintings, including landscapes purposely selected to resonate with Harewood’s surrounding gardens designed by Capability Brown.
