Love & Legacy: Our Grandmothers is a joint research project by Barbadian-Scot curator Cat Dunn and South Korean artist Joy Baek that features stories of grandmothers from different cultures and time zones
“The exhibition will share ongoing research surrounding the traditions and changing roles of grandmothers in South Korea and Barbados, with specially commissioned artworks by South Korean artist Joy Baek. What are the roles grandmothers play within families and within the broader community? A series of conversations and aural archive between Dun and Baek will examine the intergenerational and intercultural exchange of stories, language, traditions, emotions and memories.
“Our Grandmothers fed us, nurtured us and are the givers of knowledge and wisdom. They are storytellers and survivors. They are loved, adored but their voices are rarely heard in public, their roles are often not formally recognised.”
The exhibition opens Friday 9th September, 6-8pm at French Street Gallery and will also be open on Saturday 10th September 11am - 6pm, with an In Conversation between Cat Dunn & Joy Baek at 2:00 - 3:30pm. Wheelchair accessible.
The exhibition forms part of Cabbage's Resilience Programme, which is concluding with a month-long take over of French Street Gallery, with different exhibitions and events each weekend throughout the month.
