Taking place as part of Black Arts World: Slate Weekender - a group exhibition of some of the most exciting Black* artists living and working in the North.   

The diversity of forms and styles reflects the artists’ backgrounds and their contemporary preoccupations: from a constellation of silk sculptures, to quirky and sometimes hilarious short films, from vibrant paintings and photographs to glittering mandalas.

A group exhibition featuring artists Yvette Ja Hawkins, Harold Offeh, Zareena Bano, Nina Emily and Katrina Cowling. The exhibition will also include a specially created entrance mural by artist Grace Lee.
