October 19, 2015

Check out some of the featured art of upcoming London exhibition ‘Past, Present, Future: An Ode to Black British Artistry’ (26 – 29 October, 2015 at The Hoxton Basement). Curated by creative agency Shanice & Suzette of S|SPACE°, the exhibit seeks to “delve into the minds of the new generation of Black British Artists, looking at their inspirations and challenges in the past decade, through contemporary art” – as stated by its founders. They also state: “The aims of ‘Past, Present, Future: An Ode to Black British Artistry’ are to bring awareness to the work of young, emerging artists, living and practicing in Britain and to define the part played by them in the progression of Black British Contemporary Art. While the exhibition coincides with Black History month, it is not intended to highlight one specific medium or style of art, for example, what constitutes as ‘Black Art’. Rather, the focus is on the Artists themselves, being Black British and their artistic innovation.” Explore below.
