Inspired by the prophetic words of late Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison, the art exhibition No Room For Fear, co-curated by SMO Contemporary Art and the Black British Female Artists Collective (BBFA) is being hosted by leading international law firm, Hogan Lovells in London.
October will be a critical month for Britons as they face a watershed moment with BREXIT. At the same time, Black History Month is a time to celebrate cultural diversity and recognise the important contribution of people of African and Caribbean descent in the UK.
No Room For Fear, showcases the work of Adelaide Damoah, Ayesha Feisal, Carleen de Sozer, Chibuike Uzoma, Enam Gbewonyo, Gabriel Choto, Justina Kehinde, Kenny Adewuyi, Kelani Abass, Olumide Oniadipe, Sanaa Gateja and Tyna Adebowale, with intertwined cultural roots spreading across Britain and Europe to Nigeria, Ghana, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe, and Jamaica.
Through their paintings, drawings, sculpture, tapestry, mixed media works, spoken word and performances, these artists celebrate the power of their rich diversity, while fighting all forms of discrimination, and tackling socio-political issues.
