Mónica de Miranda - The Island

Wed: 11-6pm; Thu: 11-9pm (Late Opening); Fri: 11-6pm; Sat: 12-6pm

Angolan-Portuguese artist Mónica de Miranda's research-led practice is grounded in postcolonial politics in relation to Africa and its diaspora. Her most recent project The Island contemplates the complex experiences of Afrodiasporic lives and Europe’s colonial past.

Fusing fact and fiction, The Island explores a long trajectory of black presences in Portugal by bringing together intertwined narratives – drawing on African liberation movements, migratory experiences, and identity formations through a black feminist lens.

The exhibition features two new Autograph artist commissions seen for the first time: a 35-minute film work The Island, and an associated series of photographs part of Autograph’s project Amplify – Stranger in the Village: Afro European Matters, supported by the Art Fund.
