New York, Paris, Mexico City, Kingston: The International Perspectives of a Modern Jamaican Painter

One of the highlights of this year's Kingston on the Edge 2010 festival was an all too brief exhibition of drawings by the late artist Karl Parboosingh shown at the Bolivar in Kingston. Mounted by curator Claudia Hucke and very competently documented in its accompanying catalogue, the show presented a selection of Parboosingh's drawings taken from a sketchbook that he carried while he traveled through Europe and New York during the fifties. Fortunately, we were able to collaborate on a conference video that documents the life of Parboosingh as well as the vast range of material in the exhibition. Watch the video
