Captured Beauty

An Arts Council Collection National Partners Programme Exhibition.

Captured Beauty is curated by Abi Hutchinson, Artistic Director of Black Voices Cornwall. The exhibition features contemporary works of art drawn from the Arts Council Collection, with paintings by Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Ryan Mosleyy, Mowbray Odonkor, and Caroline Walker. Vanley Burke, Tarik Chawdry, and Colin Jones present photographic portraits of Britain in the 70s and 80s, alongside other artists using photography including Sunil Gupta, Ifeoma Onyefulu, Horace Ove, Tetsuya Noda, and Veronica Ryan.

Black Voices Cornwall is an organisation that exists to enable Cornwall to become an actively anti-racist county. The ambition for Captured Beauty is for ethnically diverse visitors to feel seen through the works in this exhibition. It is also an opportunity for the white community to have an insight into how it feels to be a person of colour in the 21st century, and to come away from the exhibition with a determination to finally end racism.
