Wonderful-strong - An exhibition by Maxine Beneba-Clarke

13 Dec 2022 – 16 Mar 2023

Award-winning and best-selling author and illustrator Maxine Beneba-Clarke shares a vivid array of intimate, hand-drawn watercolour illustrations from popular picture books, Black Lives Matter and Fashionista. Carrying a powerful message of Black Love for young African diaspora families, this exhibition provides a gentle visual narrative for all children to understand the Black Lives Matter movement, and to revel in joyful freedom of expression in Black and inclusive fashion. This bright and impactful collection of artworks celebrates black identities, and explores how children of colour can be supported to hold and reclaim power for themselves and their communities.

This family-friendly exhibition for all ages features original illustrations that will be shown for the very first time at CS Gallery.
