Barrington: A Retrospective – Annex Exhibition at the Olympia Art Centre

One of two annex exhibitions to Barrington: A Retrospective (January 8-April 14, 2012) is on view at the Olympia Art Centre. This annex exhibition,which is titled Our African Heritage, presents a specific subset of Barrington’s history painting, where the artist explores our African heritage. This annex exhibition is organized around the massive mural Our Heritage (1974) at the Olympia Art Centre and comprises related studies, other canvases that explore our links with Africa, and Barrington’s vast compendium of portraits of Pan-Africanist heroes, which includes portraits of our own Marcus Garvey.
