Ten Photographers Explore Living as an Immigrant in Modern Britain
Featuring stills and moving images, Kaleidoscope: Immigration and Modern Britain showcases the work of ten photographers 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 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 at Somerset House in London often takes individual and intensely personal experiences to encourage a wider appreciation of the nation’s multiculturalism. The significance of the immigrant community, particularly how they influence the country’s identity, forms a key focus challenged now more than ever.
"Kaleidescope: Immigration and Modern Britain" is on display at the Somerset House in London from June 12th to September 8, 2019. In conjunction with the exhibition, Somerset House is hosting three separate artist talks, providing an opportunity to hear more about their exhibited works and wider practice.
