Southern Somebodies

01.06.23 > 06.08.23

The Gallery of Everything presents SOUTHERN SOMEBODIES, a curated response to, and visual expansion of, the SOULS GROWN DEEP exhibition currently on view at the Royal Academy in London.

SOUTHERN SOMEBODIES features the work of over a dozen Black makers from the American south, each of whom has instigated an informal and instinctive personal practice.

The works in the exhibition aim to broaden our understanding of what constitutes a Black American vernacular, and to highlight the joy, invention and meaning within.
