About

An exploration of the ways in which modernist artists — Jacob Epstein, Edna Manley and Ronald Moody — have been inspired by Ancient Egypt. The exhibition places these artists' reworking of Egyptian art in context of their political, spiritual and gendered expressions of identity. Drawing on the influence of the Harlem Renaissance and ‘discovering' African Art, this display repositions the work of artists, such as Jamaican born Ronald Moody, in the public memory.
