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.
