My curatorial practice offers a challenge to historical ‘truths’ about people of the African Diaspora. The object is always at the centre of this critical debate. This is not a radical stance, but the spaces where, and time when, my exhibitions have been shown have impacted on their meaning for me. Between 2001 and 2006 I curated exhibitions in national and local museums, many of which have been part of the push to bring new audiences into these spaces. Since 2008 I have produced exhibitions in galleries and independent spaces with a premise on exploration. ‘Insert Here: Curating Difference’ reflects on this shift in critical curatorial practice.
