This exhibition CLOSED on Sun, 7th Nov 2021

This exhibition has finished.

Cost: Free of Charge

A new photographic art display exploring contemporary relationships with spiritualism, reality and surrealism, through a Black British lens.

Afrosurrealism, first coined in 1974 by the poet Amiri Baraka, is a visual and literary movement that uses the surreal and otherworldly to visualise the present.

The exhibition highlights in particular the spiritual bond between twins and the meaning of the number 2 – images of twins are used throughout the series to show the mirroring of reality and surrealism, symbolising union and division.

An Ode to Afrosurrealism also aims to inspire younger artists to consider different ways of creating art by looking outside the usual canon of spiritual iconography.
