Elsa James: Black Girl Essex 28th December 2019

Firstsite

Exhibitions - Behind the Scenes

British African-Caribbean artist, producer and activist Elsa James is the first artist to exhibit and work within Firstsite’s ‘Living Room’. Based in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, Elsa’s work focuses on opinions held towards people of African Caribbean heritage and the stereotyping of Essex women.

Over from June – September 2019 she will use the space to develop new artwork through a programme of open discussions with the black communities in Colchester and Essex.  They will be shown at Firstsite in October 2019, in Super Black, the first exhibition Firstsite organises as part of The Arts Council Collection National Partners Programme, alongside works from the collection curated by people from the local black community of Colchester and Essex.
