Exploring the theme of BELONGING, #TRIBE15
Following a highly enthusiastic response to a Call for Artists launched in June 2015, Chrom-Art held #TRIBE15 - Alternative Art Festival "Exploring the Current Meaning of Belonging" that brought together works that engaged the artists’ personal views and individual stories on the theme and looked at what belonging in the 21st century means. For the duration of the festival 47/49 Tanner Street became a utopian space where notions of physical space and the limitations associated with it were challenged through a dense network of multiple human relations and energies.
The Dulwich Festival is an annual celebration of Art, Music, Theatre, Literature and Walks for all.

Art Exhibition by Joyce Treasure
'Our Visual Cortex and the Obscuridad'

Artist: Joyce Treasure is a multidisciplinary artist from South East London, currently studying and living in Birmingham to complete a BA honors degree course in Black Studies.
Drawing on traditional notions of exchange, SWOP SHOP is not a platform where money changes hands, but rather objects, skills and ideas are swapped. The items that are in the “shop” will be objects, images, assemblages and zines made by students from Birmingham School of Art.
SWOP SHOP initially existed over a four-day period at Tate Liverpool and the objects were viewed online before the show. For the first two days, the shop was open for browsing and on the 30 June people were invited to come in with objects to swap for one of the objects in the shop.
Hymns is a body of work that subjectively responds to racial and gendered representation, the legacy of colonialism, and childhood adversity. Through a Black feminist approach, Joyce Treasure will present a multidisciplinary visual narrative formed from a collection of miniature portraits, traditional crafts, video art, assemblage and a zine. Through this bricolage of artworks, the work acts as a reflective site to employ critical research methods to explore the tensions between morals, faith, politics and the conventional Eurocentric powers of knowledge. The work began in 2018 and mainly produced during my 12-month residency with Grand Union/Bruntwood and showcased as part of my end of year black studies dissertation. The collection was commissioned by Bruntwood to be exhibited in Manchester, 2020, but was cancelled due to Covid 19.
