In Conversation: Marlene Smith and Malcolm Dickson

Saturday 21 May, 2.00pm to 3.30pm.

Malcolm Dickson, co-curator of Passion, will discuss Maud Sulter’s work with artist Marlene Smith, a key figure in the British black arts movement.

Maud Sulter (1960—2008) was an artist and poet of Scottish-Ghanaian descent. She believed passionately in the longstanding historical links between Europe and Africa, aiming ‘to put black women back in the centre of the frame’. Her inventive and multi-layered images and collages explore the forgotten histories of black women, from a mysterious African American sculptor to the French Creole muse of poet Baudelaire.

The talk will be followed by refreshments.

Event takes place as part of Bradford Literature Festival 2016.
