Life Between Islands

Life Between Islands

The work of BSR alumni Barbara Walker (The Bridget Riley Fellow 2020–1) and Denzil Forrester (Rome Scholar in Painting 1984–5) features in a major exhibition which recently opened at Tate Britain.

Life Between Islands: Caribbean-British Art 1950s-Now explores and celebrates the relationship between the Caribbean and Britain in art from the 1950s to today. Criss-crossing the Atlantic Ocean, it reconsiders British art history in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries from a Caribbean perspective.

The exhibition seeks to highlight the new identities, communities and cultural forms forged by Caribbean-British people. These developments have taken place in the face of hostility and discrimination, with defiance, solidarity, and creativity. The exhibition reveals the ways in which people of the Caribbean diaspora have created a distinctly Caribbean-British culture while influencing British society as a whole.

The exhibition runs until 2 April 2022.
