Barbara Walker: Place, Space and Who

This Summer Barbara Walker will create a new installation, comprising of four large scale portraits drawn directly on to the gallery walls.

Place, Space and Who is a new commission by British, Birmingham-based artist Barbara Walker, which explores migration and the experiences of women living in Margate.

Walker will create a series of large-scale wall drawings directly onto the gallery walls, during a four-month residency in the space. From the 30th April 2019, visitors will be able to see the artwork evolve and grow.

Over 20 years Walker has developed a practice of drawing, painting and portraiture, often creating large-scale drawings directly onto walls. Growing up in Birmingham her experiences have directly shaped a practice concerned with class and power, gender, race, representation and belonging. Her figurative paintings and drawings are informed by the social, political and cultural realities that affect her life and the lives of those around her.

Further information about when you can see Barbara Walker creating this commission will be released soon.

Gallery open Tuesday - Sunday and on bank holidays 10am - 5pm

From Monday 1st July we will be open 7 days per week 10am - 6pm throughout July and August.
