We are delighted to announce a major exhibition of new work by Barbara Walker MBE, which confronts and readdresses the underrepresentation of Black figures in Western art history. Walker’s first solo exhibition at Cristea Roberts Gallery, which is also her first solo show in London in over eight years, will open from 18 March to 23 April 2022.
Vanishing Point features new works which combine detailed graphite drawing and blind embossing to reinterpret classical paintings. Walker places a Black figure at the centre of each work, offering an alternative and balanced depiction of the European artistic cannon. These works, the culmination of a five-year project, will be exhibited for the first time alongside a new large-scale wall drawing.
