Life is Still Life

Life is Still Life presents an exciting selection of modern and contemporary works by women artists in the genre of still life.

Paint Like the Swallow Sings Calypso

Sat 12 November - Sun 19 February 2023

Kettle's Yard House and Gallery

Impressions of carnival by Paul Dash, Errol Lloyd & John Lyons in dialogue with works from The Fitzwilliam Museum & Kettle’s Yard

Kettle’s Yard is pleased to present Paint Like the Swallow Sings Calypso, a major new exhibition curated in dialogue with artists Paul Dash (b. 1946, Barbados), Errol Lloyd (b. 1943, Jamaica) and John Lyons (b. 1933, Trinidad), three important first-generation diaspora Caribbean painters that were working in the UK during the same period that the Kettle’s Yard House and collection was still being established.

Alongside a selection of their own works, the artists will bring together the collections of Kettle’s Yard and The Fitzwilliam Museum for the first time, assembling paintings and works on paper that reflect the rich history, themes and forms of Carnival, from street parades with music and dancing, to folklore, flora and fauna.

28 artists whose work span across five centuries will reflect elements from Carnival’s rituals and celebrations, including Jean-Michel Moreau, Albrecht Dürer, Helen Frankenthaler, Avinash Chandra, David Bomberg, Graham Sutherland and Barbara Hepworth.
