Event Information

It is not necessary to book in advance for MAC's galleries – however we will keep reviewing this, so please check online or call us before visiting. Please read our new Visitor Guidelines before arriving at MAC.

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.
