Event Information

It is not necessary to book in advance for MAC's galleries, please read our Visitor Guidelines before your visit. Due to reduced capacity across our building we will closely monitor the number of people in our exhibitions at one time.

Reintroducing a pioneering artist whose practice focused on representations of Black womanhood, the exhibition is a poignant exploration of identity by a young artist at the height of her career, using photography to interrogate the intricacies of skin, Blackness and being. 

Active between 1985–1997 this is Maxine Walker’s first solo exhibition in her home city of Birmingham.

This exhibition has been organised by Autograph, London curated by Renée Mussai and Bindi Vora with additional loans from the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and The Photographers’ Gallery, London.
