This Limited Edition print by Alvaro Barrington has been created as part of London Zeitgeist, a new group show that brings together video works by five leading artists from the city’s emerging art scene: Larry Achiampong, Alvaro Barrington, artist duo Rosie Hastings and Hannah Quinlan and Matt Copson. Curated by Sir Norman Rosenthal, the exhibition adopts its title from the curator’s 1982 exhibition ‘Zeitgeist’ that brought together 45 of the world’s most driven and symbolically heroic artists of the moment, and illustrated Rosenthal’s unwavered motivation and capacity to embolden the great talent of the time.
Available to purchase on CIRCA for one month only (24.06.21 - 31.07.21).
