A creative intervention at International Slavery Museum

The second in a series of pop-ups, Jupiter’s Song is a creative intervention exploring perspectives and experiences inspired by the Earle Collection of documents at the International Slavery Museum. Focussing on these documents, international artist Khaleb Brooks, hopes to bring a new perspective and greater visibility of the Liverpool history archive. The installation will explore perspectives, exchange and humanising experiences, confronting narratives to consider identity and how the experiences of the past manifest today.

Khaleb Brooks is an artist, researcher and writer exploring blackness, transness and collective memory. Through sculpture, printmaking, painting and performance, his work melds together memories of the middle passage, emancipation and disrupted identities, offering spaces of healing and mourning through surrealism.

This pop-up series is designed to explore new ways of working, collaborations and representation of different voices, as part of the redevelopment of the International Slavery Museum and wider transformation programme across National Museums Liverpool.

This installation is at the Dr Martin Luther King Jr Building on the Royal Albert Dock.
