Let’s start the New Year with a social visit to this small but thought-provoking exhibition. We will meet in the entrance hall on the Terrace rooms side of Somerset House at 11.20. You need to book the 11.30 slot online as numbers are controlled, but it’s FREE and you can just add a donation at time of booking or on the day. Somerset House is a short walk down the Strand from Charing Cross station.
We will meet in the café afterwards (the internal café nearest the exhibition).
The exhibition is described as:
We Are History, a new group exhibition offering a different perspective on humanity’s impact on the planet by tracing the complex interrelations between today’s climate crisis and legacies of colonialism. The exhibition spotlights the works of 11 artists with personal connections to countries in the Caribbean, South America and Africa, bringing to the fore the perspectives of their communities, not as an afterthought in climate debates, but as the source of resonant ideas and imagery related to social and environmental justice.
