I was in London in late April, my first visit to the city in 8 years. I was 
there to participate in a workshop at London Metropolitan University, but as 
always, I made time to enjoy the great city and to see some art. I visited two 
of my favourite places, Tate Modern and the National Portrait Gallery. Both 
were great, but especially the exhibition at the NPG was incredible. It was 
called “The Time is Always Now: Artists Reframe the Black Figure”. As the title 
suggests, it consisted of works by Black artists, mainly UK and US-based, but 
also many with African and Caribbean backgrounds. Some of the works were truly 
incredible and eye-opening, for example the charcoal drawings by Barbara 
Walker, reproducing famous paintings in which Black characters had a secondary 
role, but now inverting the roles by emphasising them. A gallery of 52 images 
is here:


The first part of the gallery is from Tate Modern, the second part from the NPG.

And as always, comments and critique are welcome and appreciated.
