    An Infinity of Traces

    13 April - 05 June 2021
    Curated by Ekow Eshun An Infinity of Traces is a group exhibition featuring UK-based established and emerging Black artists whose work explores notions of race, history, being and belonging. The artists address these themes through a variety of mediums, from moving image to sculpture and installation. Curated by Ekow Eshun, writer, broadcaster and former Director of the Institute of Contemporary Arts London, the exhibition reflects not only on the Black Lives Matter protests, but the existence of a more sustained antipathy to the Black presence that, in Britain, has deep roots in the nation’s imperial past. With this legacy of hostility in mind, the artists confront topics such as self-care, kinship, and collective solidarity in their work.
