Curated by Babylon Young Curator Olu Taiwo, the exhibition will be formed of new work created by artists and groups from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds and communities residing in the UK. Their work will be responding to and interrogating the powerful declaration, ‘I Matter’, and its recent complex iterations.
Olu Taiwo is currently taking part in the Babylon Young Curators Programme; a year-long professional development opportunity for young people aged 18 – 25. As a Babylon Young Curator, Olu is presenting an exhibition called ‘I Matter’ at Babylon Gallery in Ely, from 9 April – 3 May 2021.
Work has been sought from approximately 10 – 15 artists that best portray the theme. The call out for submissions for the exhibition has now closed. You can read more about the opportunity here.
Babylon Gallery is open Tuesday to Sunday, 12pm to 4pm.
