Rudy Loewe - Unattributable Briefs: Act One
Thu-Fri: 12-8pm; Sat-Sun: 12-6pm
Staffordshire St presents Unattributable Briefs: Act One, a solo exhibition by Rudy Loewe (b.1987). This body of new work looks towards Black Power movements in the English-speaking Caribbean during the 1960s and 70s, particularly in Bermuda and Trinidad.
Unattributable Briefs: Act One features paintings, drawings and archival reproductions from The National Archives. The works are a part of Loewe’s practice-based PhD research, using recently declassified records from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office as source material. This body of research interrogates the role that the British government took in suppressing Caribbean Black Power at this critical moment for Independence.
Unattributable Briefs: Act One focuses on the actions taken by Caribbean Black Power activists striving for self-determination. This will be followed by Unattributable Briefs: Act Two in 2023 at Orleans House Gallery. The second iteration highlights the operations that the British government took against Caribbean activists, such as unattributable propaganda
