No Colour Bar, Guildhall Art Gallery July 2015. Curator Michael McMillan. Installation Dubmorphology.

An exhibition and events programme that took its impetus from the life works of Eric and Jessica Huntley and the Bogle L’Ouverture Press, a publishing house and pioneering Black bookshop and cultural hub they founded in 1968.

 The Huntleys were a publishing force whose output enabled a dynamic generation of cultural and political leaders to have their stories told and celebrated for the first time in the UK.

 The project created a visual record of the socio-cultural dynamics of the stated period by using archival documents - pamphlets and posters relating to community campaigns, artists’ movements and ‘conscious’ entertainment, book fair flyers, LP sleeves and press clippings - juxtaposed with original works of art: paintings, sculpture and photographs.
