For this month’s Social Art Network event, artist-curator and usual host of the SAN Brighton Network meet-up Susuana Amoah will be discussing her recent digital exhibition: #GallerySoWhite. Launched in February, #GallerySoWhite is a growing project which aims to gather and showcase experiences related to institutional racism within English public contemporary art galleries. The exhibition is also part of Susuana’s PhD research project which explores decolonial curatorial practices in English Contemporary Galleries.
Susuana will be interviewed by the amazing writer and curator Ifeanyi Awachie. Join us for a thought-provoking discussion about galleries, racism and cultural equity.
