New Work - Mixed Medium

Eight Artist Awards Show curated by Marlene Smith - Womxn of Colour Art Award 2020-21

Altitude features the work of WoCAA winner Maybelle Peters as well as 7 WoCAA artist finalists, currently working in the UK. Some are early career practitioners just starting to find their voice whilst others have established studio practices.

The WoCAA finalists are: Charmaine Watkiss, Cherelle Sappleton, Mani Kambo, Marcia Michael, Rebekah Ubuntu, Sofia Niazi and Sola Olulode.

The bi-annual Womxn of Colour Art Award recognizes the inequities and additional barriers that Womxn of Colour often face in their practice as visual artists. Altitude aims to explore the precarious nature of artmaking if you are a womxn of colour.

This poignant, immersive and timely show celebrates the fact that these artists are continuing to make art. As such, Altitude is holding the space for artists to question audiences as well as facilitate the emergence of new aesthetic narratives for womxn of colour.
