Alvaro Barrington - They Got Time - Grandma's Land
Alvaro Barringto presents They Got Time - Grandma’s Land, a major new body of work in which the artist returns to his early experience of life growing up in the Caribbean.
For his third solo exhibition at the gallery, Barrington will take over the entirety of the Kingly Street space in Soho, creating a total environment described by the artist as a ‘universe’. Centred on three monumental, hand built architectural structures each installation draws on aspects of family life lived in the region, celebrating its diverse culture and landscape.
Opening immediately following Notting Hill Carnival (27-28 August 2023) – during which Barrington will present a number of collaborative projects (see notes) – They Got Time - Grandma’s Land will bring together new works conceived for the project that expand on the region’s traditions, alongside several made for this year’s Carnival.
