Négritude Re-embodied is an effort to recapture through our eyes the essence of the movement conceived by Aimé Césaire, Léon Gontran Damas and Léopold Sédar Senghor, which aimed to cultivate “Black consciousness” across Africa and its diaspora. The exhibition addresses the issues of historic legacy, activism and philosophies which unite us as artists, despite our varied artistic strategies, points of reference and mediums. It also examines the multicultural nature of Britain and its generations of post colonial inhabitants at a time of division and isolation, reflected not only within the country, but globally in the context of this year’s minefield of events. Exhibition Run: 7 – 17 October 2020, open Wed – Sun, 12-8pm
Location: HOXTON 253 art project space, 253 Hoxton St, Whitmore Estate, London N1 5LG
