About

Open from Tuesday 20 October

DIASPORA

A groundbreaking exhibition at Salisbury Arts Centre will bring together artists and makers of African/Caribbean heritage to showcase their work, not previously seen in Salisbury. This exhibition was originally cancelled due to the Covid lockdown and we are very happy to be able to realise it now.

Running from Tuesday 20 October to Salisbury Arts Centre Christmas closure, Diaspora is an exceptional opportunity to appreciate and collect work by artists who bring fresh viewpoints to contemporary arts practice.

In relation to art, the term 'Diaspora' has been used to discuss artists who have migrated from one part of the world to another and who express their diverse experience of culture and identity in their work; often expressing alternative narratives, challenging ideas and structures of the art world.

Artists are...

Ade Adesina – art print
Atta Kwami – painting
Chris Bramble – ceramics
Clifton Powell – painting
Freya Bramble-Carter – ceramics
Lolonyo Amegayibor-Bunge – jewellery
Onome Otite – collage
Rich Miller – ceramics
Ronaldo Wiltshire – ceramics
Ufuoma Omoluru - fashion
Wole Lagunju – painting
