Maud Sulter (1960–2008) was an award-winning artist and writer, curator and gallerist of Ghanain and Scottish heritage who lived and worked in Britain.
This exhibition includes key chapters in her multilayered photographic art practice: works from the critically acclaimed Zabat (1990), and for the first time since their initial exhibitions across Britain, several works from each of the projects Hysteria, Syrcas and Les Bijoux. This represents the first detailed examination and exhibition of Sulter’s work since 2003, with exclusive and unique access by the curators to the Sulter archive, which has remained closed to public viewing or research since the artists death in 2008. It also draws upon some individual private collections, as well as the works in the public holdings of Harris Museum and Art Gallery (Preston), The McManus: Dundee's Art Gallery and Museum, and City Arts Centre, Edinburgh.
This exhibition is an Autograph ABP / Street Level Photoworks partnership, in association withTrAIN (Transnational Art and Nation) and is the outcome of a curatorial research project byDeborah Cherry, Professor of Art History at the University of the Arts London, and Deputy Director of TrAIN, and artist and curator Ajamu, funded by Arts Council England.
