Apples & Snakes; Back to Black

  Posted on 02/06/2005

Back to Black is a major international exhibition that explores the work and influence of black artists working in America, Britain and Jamaica in the 1960s and 70s. Tracing the cultural impact of the black arts movement through the painting, sculpture, photography, graphics and film that emerged during the two decades. The exhibition explores seven major themes including the ghetto; black popular culture; and politics.

Apples & Snakes, the UK’s leading performance poetry company, have programmed three events to tie in with the Back to Black theme, bringing in the scene’s hottest MC’s, poets and vocalists live to the gallery for a series of free events.

The series kicks off on the16th of June with singers, FLOetic Lara, Jeye Severe and BABYBLUE, hosted by Toks Majek.

On the 14th of July, MC’s rip the stage up with more words-per-minute than you can count featuring Malachi, Andy Craven-Griffiths and Yamboy & Last Mango in Paris, hosted by Jason Grant.

To end the season, on the 18th of August, a selection of our finest spoken-word artists, David J, Jay Bernard and Tuup get Back to Black, hosted by Angie Bual.

Poets riding on hip-hop rhythms, and rappers dropping poetical lyrics - we’ve got them all here, so get on down to the Whitechapel.
