American artist Kehinde Wiley's exhibition The Yellow Wallpaper features exclusive portraits of Black women that the artist met on the streets of Dalston, East London. Inspired by Charlotte Perkins Gilman's renowned feminist text, the exhibition plays upon the "sense of powerlessness that happens in a person who's not seen, respected and whose sense of autonomy is in question".
Join us for an evening of talks, poetry and live music, that will explore themes around Blackness, gender and hyper-visibility alongside an exclusive preview of the exhibition.
