Behind this solo exhibition is badass American artist Tschbalala Self, who will be making her UK debut and showcasing a collection of her early works on identity, race, and womanhood. With a mix of paintings, collage, print, and sculpture, Self tackles the contemporary narrative surrounding black women's bodies through her series of "character" portraits. These bold figures — painted with bright, confident colours and strokes, pieced together with bits of African-inspired cloth (which were gifts from the artist's mother), or parts of other paintings — seem to come alive, assuming their own empowered self-identities, aware of their voyeurs and ready to look them back in the eye.
