“Through a collaboration with research group Black Artists & Modernism, the collection is audited for all contributions by artists of African, Asian and Middle East and North Africa Region descent in the UK in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.”

” The display is structured around questions that are key for any collection, explored through the perspective of the artwork: Where am I? Why am I here? Who am I? What am I doing? What’s next?. The results of this research are unveiled as they are uncovered, making new material available to the institution and its publics. “

Exhibition runs until 29th March 2020.

Location: Middlesbrough Institute for Modern Art
