Donna Berry ‘Lest We Forget: Remember, impart but remember’
4 September – 25 October 2009
A sculptural continuum of African, Caribbean and Black British historical lineage to present day; a collection consciously echoing a number of traditional African and Caribbean time honoured crafts, skills and materials while combining contemporary approaches and practices, laying bare the historical extraction and Diaspora of a Nation, to today’s Black British Culture.
Liverpool; a city with unequivocal links to the slave trade so not too surprising that it also has the oldest Black Community in Great Britain.
This exhibition was specifically created to coincide with Liverpool’s Black History Month celebrations – October 2009.
