Past exhibitions

Godfried Donkor | 01-Jun-11 to 03-Jul-11

Godfried Donkor's collages fuse historical motifs with contemporary black iconography. Born in Ghana and working internationally, he mixes styles and imagery from conflicting sides of the political and cultural divides, emphasising their creolisation as a creative force. Donkor's collaboration with poet Nii Parkes engages the viewer in an open dialogue, formulating a reciprocal narrative between image and text.

A dedicated season of artists' books curated by KALEID editions. Twelve internationally acclaimed artists engage with the Saison Poetry Library's collection in a diverse programme of exhibitions, interventions, residencies and participatory events.

Prompted by the Festival of Britain celebrations, contemporary artists are given a rare opportunity to draw upon Southbank Centre's archives and re-consider British identity sixty years on.

KALEID editions represents 'artists who do books', advocating public library collections and an interdisciplinary approach to artists' books. Visit the Saison Poetry Library on the fifth level of the Royal Festival Hall to discover the most comprehensive and accessible collection of poetry from 1912 in Britain.
