Roots Culture Identity International exhibition. 15/3/21 – 30/06/21
The exhibition aims to provide an opportunity for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BME) artists with a focus on young people, who are marginalised, face discrimination in the arts and culture sector, disproportionately impacted by austerity and now the coronavirus pandemic. This year, the exhibition focuses on the events impacting black communities over the past year.
The artists reflect on living through the pandemic, the murder of George Floyd and the impact of systemic racism on BME communities.
The move to an online exhibition has allowed us to broaden our exhibits, and for the first time, we welcome international artists. View the exhibition.
Artists in this exhibition include:Antonietta Torsiello, Ruby Khan, Joshua Donkor, Liz Awoyemi, Raymond Daley, Samia Malik, Jamie McKinley, Zita Holbourne, Amanda Walker, Sonia E Barrett
