The Royal College of Art in collaboration with the African and African Caribbean Design Diaspora (AACDD), was proud to present RCA Black, an exhibition celebrating art and design by African and African-Caribbean graduates and students.
The RCA is one of the world’s most influential postgraduate art and design colleges. As an incubator for creative talent it is renowned for its alumni, who include Ridley Scott, James Dyson, Tracey Emin and David Hockney.  _place_holder;Alongside these, the RCA has also been instrumental in developing the careers of artists and designers from African and African-Caribbean descent, such as painter Frank Bowling RA and architect David Adjaye.
RCA Black for the very first time brought together the multidisciplinary practices of the College’s African and African-Caribbean art and design alumni, past and present. The achievements of these artists and designers – spanning 60 years – were being showcased not only as exemplars of creativity but also as a point of celebration.
Role: Lead Curator
Following the exhibition a series of workshops took place in local schools with artist Emamoke Ukeleghe.
Students explored their personal histories in expressing these ideas in individual posters.
