A visual interactive study of being Black in South London
Black in South is a visual study of being black in South London by Tori Taiwo. Capturing experiences, memories & current life in an interactive exhibition. The aim is to create a rich and deep visual archive that can be added to over time by anyone and everyone black from or connected to South London in any way. Creating a true narrative of the nuances of what it is to be Black In South, started with Lewisham borough! I will transform the Old Savers store, on Catford High Street, into a gallery/exhibition space. Creating mix media pieces of work, including painting, photography, (featuring other artists work) and crafted pieces to convey stories of
being a Black South Londoner (past and present).
All carefully & thoughtfully curated for an interactive exhibition experience. This bring the first of many to come! Live performances is on 9th March only. This is free. so that it can be to be accessable for as many people as possible. However any & all donations (no matter how small) are encouraged to support further work in other boroughs, completing Lewisham & creating a permanent & protected archive accessible to everyone.
