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.

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.
