More Than 100 Black Lives Matter Banners Go on Display in the UK

An exhibition led by Black British artist group, People Dem Collective.

Joining the fight against racial injustice ever since the tragic murder of George Floyd in May, artists and activists Kelly Abbot and Victoria Barrow Williams founded People Dem Collective to organize Black Lives Matter demonstrations. The Margate-based group has now teamed up with the UK‘s Turner Contemporary for a series of three exhibitions of over 100 protest banners.

The collection features pickets with names of those who have been killed while under police custody in the UK. A one-room display, titled Margate to Minneapolis, has been inviting visitors to kneel for eight minutes and 46 seconds – the amount of time it took George Floyd to be murdered with a police officer’s knee on his neck. Alongside the presentation is a four-room exhibition titled We Will Walk, which features 110 photos and music from the civil rights movement in the U.S. from the ’50s to ’60s. The two shows are accompanied by Place, Space and Who, which displays five portraits of Black women living in Margate.

All three of Turner Contemporary’s exhibitions will run until September 6. You can head over to the gallery’s website to learn more.
