Reimaging Donald Rodney, a programme of exhibition and events exploring digital legacy and identity through the work of Black British artist Donald Rodney (1961 - 1998). Whether political or personal, Rodney illustrated his versatility, utilising a range of mediums for artistic expression through painting, installations, audio, robotics, film and archive. Becoming a prominent member of the Blk Arts Group, Rodney highlighted the socio-political condition of Britain of the 1980s/90s. Rodney’s innovation in the face of the disabling, life limiting health condition sickle cell anaemia further informs two new collaborative commissions which will be presented during the exhibition. These new works interrogate Rodney's key technology enabled works originally produced in the 1990s, Autoicon and Psalms.
A timely exhibition celebrating the achievements of a Midlands born artist considered to be one of the most significant of his generation.
