Curated by Pacheanne Anderson, Transforming Legacies brings together 21 emerging and established artists, and presents a reflection of the last 40 years of Black British art across multiple disciplines including painting, ceramics, film, and performance. The works exhibited will be commenting on life at present and exploring different versions of the future. Artworks from the likes of Ajamu, Karis Beaumont, Jaffar Aly and Enam Gbewonyo will feature in the exhibition.
Combining the strength of Black art across decades, the exhibition provides an opportunity to evaluate the way British art history is understood, shared, celebrated, and portrayed. Presented across several rooms, the exhibition is designed to allow visitors to journey through generations of Black art.
