‘The Place is Here’ presents work by over twenty black artists and collectives working in 1980s Britain. Shown across the South London Gallery and Middlesborough Institute of Modern Art, the exhibition spans painting, film, photography and archival material from this pivotal decade in British culture and politics.
It is a continuation of ‘The Place is Here’ (Nottingham Contemporary, 2017) and ‘Thinking Back. A Montage of Black Art in Britain’ (Van Abbemuseum, 2016).
‘The Place is Here’ is curated by Nick Aikens.
The exhibition is supported by Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring programme.
