How do you see colour?
Socially Engaged Art Salon (SEAS)
PhotoVoice (www.photovoice.org) has been commissioned by the Socially Engaged Art Salon (SEAS) (www.seasbrighton.com) to facilitate the collective curation of five UK-based artists whose socially engaged photographic practice explores BIPOC experience.
PhotoVoice’s vision is for a world in which everybody has the opportunity to represent themselves and tell their own story. PhotoVoice is a UK based charity that delivers participatory photography projects with under-represented communities, in the UK and internationally, which support people to tell their own stories.
Founded in 2016, SEAS is a BIPOC & LGBTQ led organisation which operates a space for exhibitions, events and workshops. SEAS’ work concentrates on socially and politically engaged practices and themes, especially in relation to issues of social and racial justice, migration & refugees, disability and LGBTQ+ communities.
Featured works will also be available to view in the Jubilee Library Window display in Brighton Jubilee Square.
Featured Artists: Crystal Alleyne, Deshé Gully, Diensen Pamben, Jade Hylton, Koffi Serge, Pacome Nguessan, with Dr Gil Mualem-Doron & Judith Ricketts
PhotoVoice and the Socially Engaged Art Salon (SEAS) present ‘How do you see colour?’, the works of five UK based artists whose socially engaged photographic practice explores the experiences of some of the black and people of colour communities in Brighton and London.
Working together as co-curators in collaboration with SEAS and PhotoVoice, the artists have come together to craft an event that explores themes on colourism, self-growth, racism and isolation.
They have allowed themselves to be vulnerable in sharing some of their personal and professional journeys in working as black and people of colour creatives with unique voices. From different walks of life, we see how they each walk the same path, discovering more about themselves and their community in their shared love for the arts.
'How do you see colour?' celebrates the distinct voice of each artist. We invite the audience to reflect on this diversity of ideas within the exhibition and beyond.
So, how do you see colour?
