British artist Hurvin Anderson in conversation with Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis Deputy Director for Exhibitions and Programs Jeffrey Uslip. Anderson is best known for evocative paintings that engage with charged social histories and shifting notions of cultural identity. His depictions of Caribbean landscapes and urban barbershops explore themes of memory, place and the indelible connection between the two.

Recent solo exhibitions include Art Now: Hurvin Anderson, Tate Modern, London (2009), which traveled to the Studio Museum, Harlem, New York (2009).
