Before and Forever: Munirah Olton of Salongo Arts

Now showing at Tate Local, the gallery in the library: Before and Forever: Munirah Olton of Salongo Arts,  a contemporary re-working of the strip-woven cloths of Ghana, West Africa

Printed and woven textiles have been sourced from Africa, the Caribbean and Europe, to reflect the roots, journey and community of the African Diaspora. ” Before and Forever” reminds us that what was there before – the sea, the earth, the light, the sun, the sky and the land – all of this remains and will be forever.

Salongo means ” We come together to create something beautiful – out of love”

The exhibition also features sculptural pottery by Munirah Olton.
