Freelands Award 2023

posted on: 2 December 2023

I am beyond delighted to be the recipient of the Freelands award for a major new commision for The Whitechapel Gallery, which will bring together strands from the last 20 years of my practice. This includes extending ongoing research into communities in the Kalahari and the descendents of indigenous and enslaved people in the Caribbean and Americas, tracing linguistic and folkloric connections. During the exhibition, I plan to work directly with the local young people from Tower Hamlets’ diverse diasporic communities through a series of creative workshops, as well as to curate a public programme exploring the evolution of photography in London since the 1980’s.
