Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery, Plymouth, UK
This exhibition brought together specially commissioned work from five international artists that reflected on the transatlantic slave trade, its abolition and contemporary legacies in Plymouth and Devon. Each of the artists’ interventions in the museum space looked critically at the different histories of slavery and our relationship to contemporary slavery through everyday consumerism. Bradley created Lent Lily a bespoke wallpaper for one of the galleries. The design for this was drawn from the symbolism of the daffodil; flower of Easter redemption and also a crop harvested by frequently ill-paid and exploited Eastern European pickers in Devon and Cornwall. Curated by Zoe Shearman and Raimi Gbadamosi.
Artists included: Melanie Jackson, Lisa Cheung, WESSIELING, Fiona Kam Meadley
