The Place Is Here

A display of over 100 works from the 1980s explores the racial division, economic inequality and civil unrest in Britain during this decade.
During the 1980s art, in terms of both its history and its institutions, was perceived as white and western-centric. This exhibition showcases the pioneering artists of this era who sought to represent the histories, identities and issues of underrepresented and often marginalised ethnicities in their work.
Among those featured are John Akomfrah, Sonia Boyce, Vanley Burke, Eddie Chambers, Mona Hatoum, Lubaina Himid, and Isaac Julien.
