Curator-led tour of Maud Sulter
27 January 2016 at 10:45 am - 11:45 am
Join us for a rare opportunity to view an installation of the sixteen original photomontages of Syrcas, a seminal body of work created by Maud Sulter (b. 1960 – d. 2008) during the early 1990s. Sulter was an influential visual artist, poet, playwright and curator of Scottish-Ghanaian descent. Throughout her career and across different media, Sulter has questioned the lack of representation of black women in the histories of art and photography, and critically investigated the complex experiences of the African diaspora in European history and culture over the past six hundred years. Our tour will be led by exhibit organizer Karin Bareman of Autograph ABP. Autograph ABP was established in 1988 as a charity with the mission of advocating the inclusion of historically marginalised photographic practices. Rivington Place opened in October 2007 and is the UK’s first permanent public space dedicated to diversity in the visual arts and the first new public gallery to be built in London for 40 years since the Hayward Gallery. The RIBA award-winning building was designed by David Adjaye OBE and is influenced by African and contemporary art as well as the history of the local area. Cost: Patrons, Friends and Guests Free.
