The Black Triangle
Mon-Fri: 10-6pm; Sat: 11-5pm
“The triangle is: The Americas & Caribbean, Europe and Africa. The black triangle for me is a very deep feeling, politically, culturally and socially one that is to be presented in a simple way. I had to capture it through my camera, through my work and present it as honestly as possible”. - Armet Francis
On the occasion of British Black History Month, this October, Atlas Gallery presents a group exhibition of some of the most famous and era-defining images, depicting the historical moments and heroes of the fight against racist ideology and politics on three continents.
Borrowing Francis’ poignant image of a Black Triangle unifying communities spread between the UK, America and Africa, the exhibition will focus on some of the key events, portraits, demonstrations, protests, tragedies, struggles and crimes that took place across these regions.
In collaboration with Dr Mark Sealy, Director of Autograph & Photography and the Archive Research Centre, London College of Communication.
