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.

We Are Here is an exhibition by UK Black Female Photographers (UKBFTOG), which evolved through an open call out and selection process and addresses diverse themes and ideas such as: isolation and freedom during lockdown, Black female identity, the beauty of our natural landscape, Black Lives Matter protests and a critique of the fashion industry.

The works shown here represent one common thread: ‘A colourful celebration of life’.  The artists selected are both emerging and established within their photography careers.

Artists featured in this exhibition are: Carla Thomas, Dami Fawehinmi, Denise Maxwell, Dominique Nok, Gifty Dzenyo, Naomi Williams, RUBY LDN and Zacchia Moore.

The exhibition was curated by Dominique Nok, in collaboration with Denise Maxwell and RUBY LDN.

Publicly funded by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and by players of People’s Postcode Lottery through Postcode Culture Trust.
