Opening: 10 November 18:00-21.00

10 November - 28 November

A new body of work by Rudy Loewe examining Britain’s relationship to Caribbean Black Power movements during the 1960s and 70s. Recently declassified records from The National Archives have been used as source material for painting and drawing. The exhibition illuminates a part of British history that has been suppressed in the archive, weaving it into the genealogy of Empire. 

 

Loewe’s practice explores black histories, gender and Caribbean folklore through visual practice. They interrogate what has become truth in the collective memory, envisaging alternate futures that centre black queer and trans experience.
