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.
N.B. Following the second lockdown Salisbury Arts Centre is currently closed - when the Arts Centre can reopen this Exhibition will now be extended until 9 January 2021)
A video was produced before the second lockdown and is available to view online along with the exhibition handout which is downloadable on https://www.wiltshirecreative.co.uk/whats-on/exhibitions/diaspora-exhibition/
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.
