Practice Makes Perfect LaunchFocal Point Gallery 11.00 am to 6.00 pm
Focal Point Gallery is delighted to invite you to a special opening event for ‘Practice Makes Perfect’, the first institutional exhibition of new work by Rosa-Johan Uddoh, an interdisciplinary artist working towards radical self-love, inspired by black feminist practice and writing.
‘Practice Makes Perfect’ explores the relationship of childhood education with popular ideas of the British nation, and how this forms British subjects. This develops Uddoh’s practice exploring the effects of black British popular culture on self-formation. Responding to the current debates about black history within the National Curriculum and urban space, Uddoh has approached the creation of new work for this exhibition as therapeutic ‘wish fulfilment’ in a time of uncertainty in education and wider racial tension.
The opening will take place at Focal Point Gallery on Saturday 22 May, from 11.00pm to 6.00pm. To ensure your wellbeing, we will be limiting visitors in the gallery space, which is why you are invited to select a timed 45 minute slot for your visit.
