We Made It! salutes past and present-day BAME creativity and innovation – all from Haringey. Exploring the collections from Bruce Castle Museum and Haringey Archive, this exhibition celebrates the more recent artistic excellence of portraitist Kelvin Okafor and the creative storytelling of visual artist Agenda Brown of Visual Marvelry, alongside the early work of internationally-significant photographers David A. Bailey, Dave Lewis, Ingrid Pollard and Suzanne Roden. Emerging talent Marquel Williams from Tottenham shows his new fashion designs, reflecting on the Windrush Generation and influenced by renowned textile designer Althea McNish, with made examples using her beautiful fabric. For the first time the award-winning ‘Sewn Together’ African and Caribbean commemorative quilts made by Sonja Camara and the Haringey community will be displayed. The collection of artists includes Gary March, Melonie Stennett, Bernette Hall, Antony Paul Maina, Adjoa Wiredu, Tony Wolliston and Tania Pascoal, amongst many others.
Enjoy, explore and be inspired.
