Daddy I Want To Be A Black Artist


‘Daddy, I want to be a black artist', by Kimathi Donkor

This exhibition of new work by Kimathi Donkor will reflect on themes arising from Donkor's engagement with local teenage black residents as they discovered the work of black British artists in the national collection at Tate Britain during workshops conducted earlier this Summer.

For this exhibition and inspired by the experiences of these recent workshops, Donkor has created new large scale paintings that embody the his ongoing concerns with identity, aesthetics, agency and representation.

Alongside these new paintings, visitors will be invited to participate in a museum-style ‘learning zone' where numerous resources and materials will be available for visitors to further explore the works that were visited during the workshops and the wider representation of black British artists within the UK's visual arts culture.
