This month, an array of artists of Afrikan descent will showcase their catalogue in a unique exhibition.
The incredible talent present at this event includes Aaron Ayiih, Carol Sherman, Latisha Cesar, Joshua Donkor, Rob Mitchell and Abbi Bayliss.
Abolition Is NOW! represents the first time first time that an exhibition specifically of artists with Afrikan lineage has taken place at the Bristol 1904 Arts venue within the historic Red Lodge Museum in BS1.
The museum offers visitors the chance to explore the long-standing presence and influence of Afrikan heritage people in Bristol. In particular one can find a portrait dated to the 1630s described as the ‘earliest known likenesses of a black boy in English art.’
The exhibition is supported by The World Reimagined – a mass participation art education project designed to transform our understanding of the Transatlantic Slave Trade and its impact.
More information about this event and tickets can be found via its webpage.
