Celebrating Liverpool’s Black Artists – Sumuyya Khader

Venue Bluecoat
Admission Free
Start Time 11:00
End Time 16:00

Bluecoat are delighted to host a new project organised by Liverpool based artist Sumuyya Khader.

The exhibition will run from Tue 6 Oct to Sun 25 Oct and can be viewed on Bluecoat’s exterior wall on Blundell Lane.

Using billboard style pasting, Khader will showcase the work of 5 Black artists from Liverpool along Bluecoat’s facade on Blundell Lane.

The project will feature the work of artists Amber Akaunu, Sumuyya Khader, Kiara Mohamed, Salma Noor, and Millie Toyin Olateju.

Khader’s project responds to a lack of visibility for Liverpool’s Black artists.

“We have one of the oldest Black communities in the UK and a wealth of creative talent that often gets overlooked. Although Liverpool is known for being a city that celebrates culture as a Black woman I rarely see people who look like me being acknowledged and their work shared.” – Sumuyya Khader
