Reclaiming the Colonial Gaze - Matthew, Tyrell & Adekunle

Live on Zoom, Free but Ticketed 

Book via (

Join us in this unique online event with artists Annu Palakunnathu Matthew (Rhode Island), Stacey Tyrell (New York) and Tayo Adekunle (UK) in a panel discussion exploring photography’s complex relationship with the colonial gaze but also it’s power to challenge, confront and reframe it. Through varied genres such as self-portraiture, still life and drawing from the family archive, each artist will discuss their unique approach to exploring their personal narratives of migration, race, memory and identity, which collectively spans across UK, India, Nigeria, West Indies, Scotland, Canada and the USA.

Chaired by Zandra Yeaman (Curator of Discomfort, Hunterian Museum, University of Glasgow) and programmed as part of Black History Month Scotland 2021
