Black History Month at MIMA
23 for 23 is a compilation of articles, talks, podcasts, reviews and provocations on Black Lives and Histories. These were gathered over the past year as learning points for our staff and collected here for Black History Month, October 2023, as a resource for everyone.
23 for 23 is an eclectic mix which gives an interesting perspective on our learning. It features the voices of actor Daveed Diggs, author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and free diver Zandile Ndhlovu, plus reviews of exhibitions in the UK and the USA. A number of the pieces draw connections with the natural environment and with Black experiences of land, water and climate change, in keeping with the environmental thematic that runs through much of MIMA’s work.
