Dulcie Davy is a visual artist based in south London, inspired by the beauty and diversity of the female black community, through an afrofuturistic perspective. The exhibition will feature Dulcie’s own work, as well as paintings by the local young girls who have come to Davy Workshops at BAC this Spring.
Chimna Lionn is a young creative director and a fashion designer with many creative disciplines under her belt. The exhibition features photos from FAM BAM, a photography project which reinvents traditional styles of family portraits, working with young single parents. The photos are symbolic of their story, voice, and message to the world.
Honour is a young creative, who has collaborated with facilitator and teacher Brenda Kwesiga to produce Mentally Worn. Honour and Brenda have facilitated workshops for people to explore what mental illness looks like in wearable objects. The exhibition will feature the objects and photos, expressing how we wear mental illness.
Ines Yearwood-Sanchez will present the culmination of her workshops and collaboration with young people going through transition moments out of education, to explore how that feels and what young people aren’t taught. The exhibition will feature a collage of the creative work from the sessions, which viewers can add to and take away from.
Courtney Brown is one of BAC’s Young Producers, they will curate a selection of works by local artists around the theme of Black joy for her mini exhibition “I Dream In Black”.
