Cultural historian Michael Prokopow, who is preparing a monograph about Hurvin Anderson, joins the painter in a conversation that places Anderson’s current exhibition at The Arts Club in the context of his career. Along with recent landscapes, Anderson includes in this exhibition Flat Top, 2008, a classic painting from the barbershop series that brought him international attention. By bringing together these two series, Anderson contrasts interior and exterior Jamaican spaces, while defining a through line across his oeuvre in terms of structure, abstraction, and perception. Prokopow will draw on his deep knowledge of the artist to bring forth these and other threads in Anderson’s thinking and making.
