Back to Back

Organiser:

Wolverhampton Art Gallery, Lichfield Street, Wolverhampton WV1 1DU.

Saturday 1st October 2016 to Monday 31st October 2016

Black artists from or linked to Wolverhampton have made a huge impact on Black and British arts from the 1980s to the present day.

For Black History Month 2016 Wolverhampton Art Gallery’s splendid Victorian Gallery will host an exhibition of artwork by contemporary Black British artists

Following the success of our recent exhibition, Black Art in Focus, the display Back to Black will include the very latest items acquired through our Heritage Lottery Fund Collecting Cultures project as well as a selection of paintings, prints and sculptures by black and Asian artists from our existing collection.

Visitors can also listen to audio recordings of local artists and community members speaking about their experiences and influences, also commissioned as part of the Heritage Lottery Funded project
