Sparrow Come Back Home exhibition closes on the 5 February


The exhibition Sparrow Come Back Home, which opened on 26 December, will close on 5 February. The show, which features versions of Sparrow’s album covers in ceramic, was created by artists Carmel Buckley and Mark Harris.

Sparrow Come Back Home is the title of calypsonian Mighty Sparrow’s (Slinger Francisco’s) 1962 album, which points to the irony of his being appreciated only once he had left Trinidad for the US.

The exhibition is at the ICA Fox Reading Room, Institute of Contemporary Arts, The Mall, London, SW1Y 5AH; the gallery is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday – Sunday, 11am – 6pm; Thursday, 11am to 9pm; closed on Mondays.
