In Derek Walcott’s 1992 Nobel Lecture The Antilles: Fragments of Epic Memory, he illustrates the essence of Caribbean culture as created by its cities; boundaryless, vibrant at its core, and rhythmic in its movement. The Art Gallery of Ontario’s (AGO) new exhibit Fragments of Epic Memory, titled in honour of Walcott’s speech, encompasses the very beauty he imagined for his people.
