Sokari Douglas Camp CBE in Conversation - Presumption of the Possible!


Fri Feb 03 2023 at 07:00 pm to 09:00 pm


Victoria and Albert Museum | London, EN

Join artist Sokari Douglas Camp CBE, in conversation with the V&A's inaugural Senior Curator of African and Diaspora Textiles and Fashion, and lead curator of Africa Fashion, Dr Christine Checinska.
Hear the story behind 'Europe Supported by Africa and America', the monumental work currently on display in our Hintze galleries, which addresses the legacies of slavery and inequality, issues of power and gender, and the climate crisis.
They'll discuss the representation of textiles from across the continent through a process Douglas Camp describes as ‘welding, cutting and bending steel’.
In collaboration with October Gallery Trust UK.
