This event is part of our Past Programme
Curator and art historian Alayo Akinkugbe reflects on the approaches and themes of our current exhibition An Alternative History of Photography. In this new talk she will create a critical dialogue with the show – does it achieve what it set out to do? In what ways does it interrogate and expand accepted and canonised histories in photography and visual culture?
Moderated by Luisa Ulyett (Curator of Talks & Events, The Photographers' Gallery).
Alayo Akinkugbe graduated from the University of Cambridge with a BA in History of Art in 2021 and completed the MA in Curating The Art Museum at the Courtauld Institute of Art in 2022. She is an art historian, writer and the founder of Instagram platform, @ABlackHistoryOfArt, which highlights Black artists, sitters, curators and thinkers from art history and the present day. Her aim is to continually champion emerging and forgotten Black artists from across the globe and across all periods of art history, in a bid to change the way art is taught and presented in the West, in favour of a more global and inclusive approach.
