Keith Piper (b. 1960) returns to Wolverhampton Art Gallery with a major exhibition that brings together key works from across the first three decades of his career focusing on the 1980s and 90s and ending with a video from 2007.

About

Covering a wide range of subjects from the objectification of  the ‘black body’, through politics of the moment, to slavery, this exhibition confronts issues of race and class, that are at the heart of the legacy of Britain’s racialised empire.

Piper, a core player in the Black Art Movement and British contemporary art, first exhibited at Wolverhampton Art Gallery in 1981 in the ground-breaking exhibition Black Art an’ Done. This new solo show Keith Piper: Body Politics. Work from 1982 – 2007 demonstrates the shift in his practice from painting, print and collage towards new media.
