Original cutting/Taken from Guardian newspaper, August 16. 1986, p.8. A Review of From Two Worlds (Whitechapel)/Colin Self (ICA), by Waldemar Januszczak.

Title: There is a world elsewhere, accompanied by a photographic reproduction: Detail from Colin Self’s No Lost Years, on show at the ICA

From the article: “Yet so fruitful is the non-European influence today that the optomistic observer is surely entitled to ask a momentous question: has a real challenge at last been mounted to the Greco - Roman tradition that has dominated Western art for 2,000 years? Unfortunately From Two Worlds does not ask that question. Inexplicably, the exhibition does not even include any of the above named sculptors. Instead this distinctly cosy selection has largly been made From One World, from the same group of black artists who dominated The Thick Black Line at the ICA last year and Into the Open at Sheffield’s Mappin Art Gallery in 1984.”
