For Yorkshire Sculpture International, Jamaican-Canadian artist Tau Lewis (b1993) presents her first solo show outside of North America.

It brings together recent works with an installation specially commissioned for this exhibition. At the heart of the new installation hangs a large-scale quilt, The Coral Reef Preservation Society, which takes its title from a painting of the Negril coral reef in Jamaica that hung as a print on the wall of the artist's childhood home.

Its depiction of aquatic life forms became a reference point for a new body of work, in which Lewis uses myth making to reanimate the history of loss that was the Middle Passage.

The exhibition is part of Yorkshire Sculpture International, a festival of sculpture taking place across Leeds and Wakefield.
