An exhibition opening on Sunday 29th October including prints of the 1831 uprising, images from slave rebellions, photographs from the 1987 uprising in St. Pauls and an actual cell door (complete with prisoner’s graffiti) from the Bristol city jail (cira 1840).

The Exhibition includes A Luta Continua (The Struggle Continues) by Bandele Iyapo (artist and “trouble maker”). This consists of works in a variety of media including a collection of montages critiquing the inability of Bristol’s establishment, both business and civic, to come to terms with the city’s role in the slave trade. Bandele’s thought provoking work ruffles feathers and challenges misconceptions such as: “there where no slaves in Bristol” and “there is a bridge in Bristol that is a monument to slaves”.
