THIS IS FOR THE JEEPS
Opening 25th Aug
Open by appointment until the 17th of October 2021
This is for the Jeeps will feature an interactive memorial to two musicians who died 20 years ago, whose passing left a considerable impact on people in Black communities.
The project presents work from artists curated via both invitation and open-call, launching with an opening event that invites public contributions to a collaborative memorial shrine. Featuring music videos, electronic candles, fan-made apparel and other multimedia works, the exhibition culminates in a public expression of rememberance, collectively assembled by artists whose lives were touched by the departed.
"This is for the Jeeps" was conceived in response to a cultural gap in contemporary art in the United Kingdom and the perceived need to steward cultural references from Black communities in a context that prioritizes artist's voices rather than relegating them to an outsider economy within the mainstream arts industry.
