Black History Month: 'Black Rhythm'

Black Rhythm

The understanding of it is not inherent in all of us, but we all have an undeniable connection to it.  It's what keeps us alive, the regulated pattern of a strong beat, a weak beat and the inaudible rest beat. Our bodies are driven by it and our interaction is defined by it. Rhythm.

Rhythm is a wonderfully powerful tool; in our speech, our movements, our music and in our mark making there is an ever present rhythm and no more evident is this than in black culture.  In all its fantastic vibrant and stimulating history, black culture is a perfect example of how rhythm plays such a strong and powerful role in a society.

Through the medium of print, site specific installation, photography, film and music this exhibition will explore the notion of rhythm.
