Not Black or White is a show that brings together artists and craftsmanship of courage and thoughtfulness based in the UK, South Africa, Benin, Cameroun and Senegal.
“Not Black or White brings you a collective of artists who have reimagined the traditional use of colour, material, nature, and culture.. They are visual story tellers who have looked to their heritage, the natural environment, and personal narratives to activate their remarkable skills, exploration work and creativity. There is a sense of raw storytelling and palpable emotion that can be felt from the pieces they have created…”
The works on show are a testament to the many global, community and individual human aspects that need to be learnt, supported, and celebrated. The show demonstrates the power of contemporary art taking on the challenge and doing its part to help us visualise different and endless colours, making us more aware of the world we live in, the injustices that exist, the need for the love we give, and the need to preserve our heritage and the stunning natural environment that surrounds us - to realise that it’s all in the colours.
