A solo survey exhibition of artworks dating from 1982 to 2007. Covering a wide range of subjects from the objectification of the ‘black body’, through politics of the moment, to slavery, this exhibition confronts issues of race and class, that are at the heart of the legacy of Britain’s racialised empire.

Piper, a core player in the Black Art Movement and British contemporary art, first exhibited at Wolverhampton Art Gallery in 1981 in the ground-breaking exhibition Black Art an’ Done. This new solo show Keith Piper: Body Politics. Work from 1982 – 2007 demonstrates the shift in his practice from painting, print and collage towards new media.
