Black identity and the Role of Contemporary Art: lecture by Dr.Christine Checinska

Dr.Christine Checinska, Stuart Hall Library animateur, fashion designer, curator and academic will deliver a lecture at the Dulwich Art Gallery on Wednesday 18th February 10.30-11.30 am.

Her talk should appeal to anyone interested in art and textiles and is part of the series: Staying Power: Art and the Black Experience.

Christine’s lecture will look at the use of cloth in the work of artists: Yinka Shonibare, Maude Sulter and Barbara Walker as a way of examining three moments within the history of the ‘black’ presence in Britain, focussing primarily on issues around African Diasporas, cultural identities and histories.
