A new photography exhibition exploring identity and immigration in modern Britain.
Featuring stills and moving image, Kaleidoscope showcases the works of ten photographers born or based in Britain, many with family origins abroad including Hong Kong, India, Jamaica and Russia, and explores what it means and how it feels to live as an immigrant, or a descendent of immigrants, in Britain today. Co-curated by writer, Ekow Eshun and Creative Director, Darrell Vydelingum the exhibition forms a celebration of immigration in everyday life.
Reflecting the multiplicity of voices that together form modern Britain, the exhibition takes individual and often intensely personal experiences to encourage a wider appreciation of the nation’s multiculturalism. The significance of immigrant communities forms a key focus, particularly how they influence the country’s identity, challenged now more than ever.
Kaleidoscope: Immigration and Modern Britain is the next exhibition in The Charles Russell Speechlys Terrace Rooms Series an ongoing partnership with the leading law firm to present a wide range of free exhibitions reflecting the broad interests of both organisations.
