CHELSEA space exhibition

The African, Asian and Afro-Caribbean Visual Art Archive was established in the Library at Chelsea College of Art & Design thirty years ago at a time when young Black British artists were confronting the art institutions of the day. This exhibition gives both an opportunity to investigate the records of exhibitions and associated events that challenged the prevailing orthodoxies of the time, and demonstrates the continuing importance of documenting the practice and theory of Black visual art.
