Untitled: art on the conditions of our time brings together work by 10 British-African diaspora artists.

The display focuses on how their practices ask important questions about some of the cultural and political issues of our turbulent times, featuring new commissions by Barby Asante, Appau Junior Boakye-Yiadom and NT. There will also be new and recent work by Larry Achiampong, David Blandy, Phoebe Boswell, Kimathi Donkor, Evan Ifekoya, Cedar Lewisohn, Harold Offeh and Ima-Abasi Okon. Painting, drawing and printmaking sits alongside performance, video and sound installation.

The exhibition title refers to the longstanding art historical convention of leaving artworks ‘untitled’ in order to encourage attention on the works themselves, and eliminate reliance upon contextual information.

Untitled asks viewers to examine the conditions of our time through the prism of Black British artists working today, without reducing the encounter solely to an exploration of identity. By avoiding over-contextualisation, the exhibition seeks to show how the selected artists create platforms for audiences to explore the connections between art, culture and society.
