Visible Skin: Rediscovering the Renaissance through Black Portraiture, King’s outdoor exhibition on the Strand, has been extended until 18 February 2022 due to popular demand.
Part of the launch programme for Strand/Aldwych, a new public space in London, Visible Skin, which showcases the work of artist Peter Brathwaite in collaboration with King’s Renaissance Skin research project, has been seen by thousands of pedestrians on the Strand since the exhibition opened in September. It has received wonderful press reviews, with TimeOut London recommending it in October as one of the most inspiring things to do in the city for Black History Month.
The launch of the exhibition was celebrated on 1st October in a special Q&A event with Peter Brathwaite and Farah Karim-Cooper, Professor of Shakespeare Studies at King’s and Co-Director of Education at Shakespeare’s Globe. You can watch a recording of this talk in the video below:
