Life Between Islands is the expansive exhibition at Tate Britain celebrating the work of Caribbean-British artists from the 1950s until the present day. The acclaimed show explores the art of the Caribbean diaspora alongside work by British artists whose artwork speaks of Caribbean heritage or Caribbean themes, featuring over 40 artists from across four generations, including Grace Wales Bonner, Steve McQueen, Sonia Boyce, Alberta Whittle, Chris Ofili, and many more.
Highlighting the vast cultural contribution of the Caribbean-British community to postwar Britain through artworks touching on themes of migration, memory, the legacy of empire, and community, the exhibition moves through the realms of painting, sculpture, photography, fashion design, music, and filmmaking, as discussed in this conversation between featured artists Grace Wales Bonner and Lubaina Himid.
Dazed is now offering readers the opportunity to experience this unique show in a special private view. A limited number of tickets are available for an after-hours event which will include complimentary drinks and an introduction with Alex Farquharson, one of the exhibition’s curators.
