Join us for a special evening event to celebrate the opening of ‘Libation’, EVEWRIGHT’s first solo exhibition in a public gallery, showcasing a collection of new and seminal works spanning 20 years.

Be the first to experience this important and thought-provoking exhibition, showcasing new and seminal works by EVEWRIGHT, spanning 20 years.

This exhibition opening event is free to attend and everyone is welcome to join.

Striking up conversations about what it means to be Black and British in the UK today, ‘Libation’ features drawing, sculptures, digital films, photography, and recent performance all of which explore themes of migration, identity, race, class and journeys.

Works include ££Kissi Pennies$$, a series of sculptures that challenges the notion of value, currency, slavery and trade that is inspired by modern day migration and the ancient African former currency Kissi Pennies.

EVEWRIGHT will also produce his first site-specific gallery artwork conceived for Firstsite. In the foyer and leading through into the galleries will be a floor work produced as a result of a ‘drawing performance’ commissioned by Firstsite.
