From the Venice Biennale to the Kent coast, contemporary artist Sonia Boyce brings her colourful geometric installation to Turner Contemporary.
Immerse yourself in a kaleidoscope of colour, pattern and reflection, as Sonia Boyce combines the experimental vocals of five Black women musicians with geometric shapes, vibrant wallpapers and colour-tinted video.
The installation is inspired by Boyce’s work over the last 20 years, building a collection that honours the contributions of Black British women musicians to culture and society. Boyce brought musicians Jacqui Dankworth, Poppy Ajudha, Sofia Jernberg, Tanita Tikaram and composer Errollyn Wallen together at the iconic Abbey Road Studios in London and Atlantis Studios in Stockholm to improvise vocals together. The exhibition showcases their incredible vocal talent whilst celebrating the creativity and collaboration of women, encouraging everyone to find their voice.
In 2022, Boyce became the first Black woman artist to represent Britain at the Venice Biennale, an annual celebration of international art and architecture hosted at multiple venues across the city.
