AGO Art Gallery of Ontario – May 19, 2016 – August 21, 2016

Durham Press would like to congratulate Hurvin Anderson on his first Canadian solo exhibition currently on view at the Art Gallery of Ontario. The exhibition titled, Hurvin Anderson: Backdrop, includes a comprehensive collection of recent paintings alongside previously unseen sculpture, photography, and large-scale drawings.

This traveling show, just recently on view in St Louis, fills the entire fourth floor of AGO’s Contemporary Tower. The exhibition offers viewers a glimpse into the bright and lively world of Jamaica– where Anderson’s parents are originally from. Each painting is a reflection of his thoughts of cultural identity and intimate familiarity of the Caribbean culture through his experiences in the Jamaican Afro-Caribbean community as well as his artist residence in Trinidad.
