Upcoming projects

8th September – 18th December 2022
We Came Here at Van Gogh House London, UK

We Came Here manifests as a conversation across a century; between 20-year old Vincent Van Gogh who in 1873 had just arrived in Stockwell; and 20-year old Olive Morris, a Jamaican-born, Brixton-based community leader, who in 1972 was campaigning for feminist, black and squatters’ rights. The imagined dialogue between artist and activist will explore their shared and divergent experiences of London, social justice and the development of personal and socio-political consciousness. In other audio testimonies drawn from historic archives, more young migrants to Brixton and Lambeth will tell their stories.

17th September 2022 – 12th March 2023
Very Private? at Charleston Lewes, UK

Exploring themes of sex, intimacy, gender and identity, this exhibition presents a selection of Duncan Grant’s recently discovered erotic drawings alongside responses by six contemporary artists – Somaya Critchlow, Harold Offeh, Kadie Salmon, Tim Walker, Alison Wilding and Ajamu X.

3rd – 17th December
Creating Patterns at GLOAM Gallery, Sheffield, UK
The exhibition uses the structure, title and track titles as a starting points for 15 new works. Each work takes its title from an album track from the Creating Patterns album from seminal UK Afro-futurist group 4Hero. In referencing Creating Patterns, Offeh continues his interest, strategies and approaches to embodying histories and archiving retro futures and speculative fictions.
