Room: Gallery IV


Gallery IV

Sonia Boyce RA will be the first black woman to represent Britain at the Venice Biennale in 2021, and in Gallery IV she’s brought together a kaleidoscope of works for us to explore. Your eyes are instantly drawn to Athena Anastasiou’s portrait Bringing the Past to New Horizons, and nothing feels more like a reflection of the times than John Smith’s film piece showing the repeated washing of hands to the tune of Happy Birthday.
