Wolverhampton Art Gallery continues to acquire new contemporary artworks and this exhibition showcases some of our most exciting new additions.
Where: Wolverhampton Art Gallery
The exhibition includes pieces by three highly acclaimed black artists: Black Female Hairstyles, a series of colourful collages by Sonia Boyce which explore the politics of black hair and black identity; Silver Self Portrait by US artist Glenn Ligon, made fromcoal dust; and Go West Young Man by Keith Piper, whose work was first shown at the Gallery in the early 1980s when he was a member of the Wolverhampton Young Black Artists.
These artworks were acquired with support from Heritage Lottery Fund’s Collecting Cultures, the V&A Purchase Grant Fund and the Friends of Wolverhampton Arts and Museums.
