PREVIOUS EXHIBITIONS PRIOR TO LOCKDOWN:
They Came Before us exhibition CAN’T BE WHAT YOU CAN’T SEE was on display in Karamel from 14th February to 10th March 2020 (had to close early due to pandemic)
After two amazing exhibits CAN’T BE WHAT YOU CAN’T SEE came to Karamel!
Amidst the dealings of Brexit, the Windrush scandal and the forgetting of the Grenfell victims, the sense of what it means to be a Londoner and the feeling of “belonging” can be seen as quite a sensitive topic now more than ever. This is especially the case for young women of colour in London. With statistics reflecting the lack of opportunity and invisibility young BAME women face daily, this exhibition is the final showcase of They Came Before Us: A History of Women of Colour in the UK (TCBU) project.
The project has brought together over 50 BAME women creatives over a period of 11 months to develop and create the exhibition, using 5 creative disciplines: Spoken Word, Photography, Set Design, Film and Visual Arts. They have put together an exhibition that will allow the public to see through their eyes some of the hidden histories of 5 BAME British women and the vital role they played in the history of the UK.
The 50 women on the project have been able to explore elements of their identity and also create safe spaces for them to grow and build their networks, which will allow them to move forward confidently and progress in their creative fields as statistics show less than 10% of the creative industry is BAME and less than half of that percentage is BAME female.
