The Royal College of Art in collaboration with the African and African Caribbean Design Diaspora (AACDD), is proud to present RCA Black, an exhibition celebrating art and design by African and African Caribbean graduates. RCA Black will for the very first time bring together the multidisciplinary practices of the College's African and African Caribbean art and design alumni, past and present. The achievements of these artists and designers — spanning 60 years — are being showcased not only as exemplars of creativity but also as a point of celebration. Believing that the art and design sector should be truly representative of all talent, the AACDD approached the RCA to present the work of a group of graduates who are often marginalised within the creative industries. More than 20 artists, designers and makers are confirmed, including bespoke tailor Charlie Allen; photographer Eileen Perrier; painter Frank Bowling RA; contemporary artists Harold Offeh and Faisal Abdu'Allah and silversmith Ndidi Ekubia.
