The Institute for Black Atlantic Research with the support of the Contemporary Arts Development Group is proud to showcase a presentation of her work by the Black British, Yorkshire based, artist Jade Montserrat. Jade was trained at the Courtauld Institute (BA History of Art) and at the Norwich University College of the Arts, (MA Drawing). She is a research-led visual artist whose practice progresses through performance and includes publishing, painting, film, collage, print, sound, installation. Jade explores the historical presence of Black people in the North and Transnational black performers such as Josephine Baker in work that “is redemptive and has a haunting beauty” (Alan Rice in the Times Higher). Her presentation is free and open to all. It will be preceded by a wine reception and followed by a Q & A session.
