Voice Online: A History Untold

Joel Campbell, The Voice, May 12, 2021

SIGNATURE AFRICA Art have announced a new group exhibition, A History Untold which explores Black histories that are absent from the UK school curriculum, presented in partnership with England International Rugby player Maro Itoje and curated by Lisa Anderson.

A History Untold features new work by six African and Diaspora artists. These works celebrate Black history and the contributions Black figures have made to civilisation and society across the centuries.

From the origins of mathematics to jazz, the exhibition reveals lesser-known stories and addresses the oversimplified history of colonialism in the current system through a post-colonial lens.

Presented across both floors of the gallery, A History Untold features works by African artists Giggs Kgole, Djakou Kassi Nathalie, Steve Ekpenisi and Damilola Okhoya on the top floor and an immersive installation featuring sculpture and sound by British-Ghanaian artists Adelaide Damoah and Peter Adjaye on the ground floor.
