Kingston Creative is partnering with UK organisations John Hansard Gallery, Black History Month South, and Southampton Black Archives to facilitate the collaboration of two contemporary visual artists for a public art campaign nationwide, commemorating the Windrush Generation and giving voice to the subsequent Windrush scandal.
This February 2023, throughout Black History Month in the Caribbean and USA, the project, Windrush Portraits will broadcast the first stage of a nationwide public art exhibition of a transatlantic artistic collaboration with communities in both Kingston, Jamaica and Southampton, UK.
As a ‘public art’ project, Windrush Portraits will transform notions around the historically ‘permanent’ nature of art intended for public consumption, and engage audiences nationwide with digital broadcast, supported by the iPrint Digital Limited billboard network.
