Every year NOW Gallery puts on its annual photography exhibition exploring modern life and the human scale. Curated by Kaia Charles, this display, aptly titled Human Stories looks to engage with modern and progressive communities, artists, photographers, historians, filmmakers, writers and great thinkers. Drawing ideas, research and inspiration from these sources, Human Stories weaves a visual story for exhibition goers. Each year it makes us stop, take notice and think.
This year, the exhibition is entitled Another England and is co-curated by both Kaia Charles and Tamsin Silvey from Historic England. The images which will be on display at NOW Gallery aim to provoke thought on England’s multicultural heritage and contemporary diversity.
Featuring a wealth of rich archival imagery, the exhibition explores the diverse origins of diasporic migration, religion, home and working life, whilst also highlighting the embedded racism experienced by many of these communities in the past century.
“The provocation, ‘Another England’, signifies stories and images underrepresented in England’s collective history. Whilst celebrating multiculturalism, we aspire to provoke open and honest dialogue about the portrayal of Black and Asian heritage in this country over the last century” Kaia Charles says of the exhibition. Another England runs from 10th October to 11th November at NOW Gallery, Greenwich Peninsula.
