How Do You See Colour?
Online / Jubilee Library Brighton / BMECP Centre
A PhotoVoice Exhibition Commissioned by SEAS for Black History Month and Brighton Photo Fringe
PhotoVoice and the Socially Engaged Art Salon (SEAS) present ‘How do you see colour?’, the works of five UK based artists whose socially engaged photographic practice explores the experiences of some of the black and people of colour communities in Brighton and London.
Working together as co-curators in collaboration with SEAS and PhotoVoice, the artists have come together to craft an event that explores themes on colourism, self-growth, racism and isolation.
They have allowed themselves to be vulnerable in sharing some of their personal and professional journeys in working as black and people of colour creatives with unique voices. From different walks of life, we see how they each walk the same path, discovering more about themselves and their community in their shared love for the arts.
'How do you see colour?' celebrates the distinct voice of each artist. We invite the audience to reflect on this diversity of ideas within the exhibition and beyond.
So, how do you see colour?
