Upcoming ExhibitionS

A Serene Expectation of Light

15 January – 2 April 2016

Autograph ABP proudly presents A Serene Expectation of Light, the first solo exhibition in the UK by the late Mario Cravo Neto (b. 1947 – d. 2009).

One of the most important and influential contemporary Brazilian photographers, Cravo Neto was fascinated by the complex cultural heritage of Bahia in the northeast of Brazil, the point of entry for millions of African slaves between the 16th and 19th century. His imagery is deeply steeped in the religion of Candomblé an Afro-Brazilian form of worship practiced by Cravo Neto – which finds its origins in traditional West African Yoruba culture.

15 January – 2 April 2016

Autograph ABP proudly presents an installation of the sixteen original photomontages of Syrcas, a seminal body of work created by Maud Sulter (b. 1960 – d. 2008) during the early 1990s.

Sulter was an influential visual artist, poet, playwright and curator of Scottish-Ghanaian descent. Throughout her career and across different media, Sulter has questioned the lack of representation of black women in the histories of art and photography, and critically investigated the complex experiences of the African diaspora in European history and culture over the past six hundred years.
