Event description

Description

Art Moment Presented by CarolineHB

Talisman in the Age of Difference is an expansive group exhibition curated by pioneering British artist Yinka Shonibare MBE. This exhibition seeks to explore the power of magic and the subversive beauty in the works of emerging and established artists of African origin and its diaspora. Identity politics are explored by a number of artists in the exhibition, whilst others pursue an alternative path in their shared search for originality, material transformation, spirituality and the sublime.

Shonibare MBE has selected artists who produce provocative work that consciously belies a subversive and political message that does not necessarily conform to a Western vision of art. At the heart of the exhibition, Shonibare MBE asks can art that is unconventionally beautiful be a form of resistance?

Caroline HB: With over ten years of experience in the Art and Heritage sector, the number one question I am always asked is ‘How do I collect art'. My answer is always the same 'you have to be in it to collect it; you need to know what you like, to collect it', and that is always the stumbling block. For many, the art world is closed, not accessible and an experience for just a few. Caroline HB Presents Art Moments is to remove those stumbling blocks.

The monthly moments are curated to give 'Access' specifically but not limited to African and African Diaspora art; giving you an insight into different Mediums, Artists, Movements and Curators; with the knowledge, there is always someone on hand to ask that questions or provide a little direction or information when necessary.
