Frank Walter retrospective to feature two films by Isaac Julien
After remaining closed for weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Museum für Moderne Kunst (MMK) in Frankfurt has reopened with an exhibition featuring Isaac Julien film installations Territorries (1984) and Frantz Fanon: White Skins Black Masks (1996).
The exhibition is the first in a museum to present paintings, drawings, sculptures and writings by native Antiguan and Barbudan artist Frank Walter (1926–2009), who gained international notoriety mainly after the 58th Venice Biennale. Works by contemporary artists such as Isaac Julien were included to create dialogues around colonialism in the Caribbean in the past and present, as well as the intellectual contexts of colonial and post-colonial thought, addressing the visual regime of racism, the complexities of identity, class and racialisation.
The exhibition is open until 15 November 2020.
