Experience Paradise at Claridge’s ArtSpace

Head to a higher place at Like Paradise, a multidisciplinary group show curated by writer Ekow Eshun at Claridges ArtSpace that brings together artists from the African and South Asian diaspora, including Julianknxx, Jade Montserrat, Miranda Forrester and Samuel Ross.

The exhibition spotlights works that place images of Black people in natural landscapes to dispel the stereotype that the Black experience is an inherently urban one – a perception that marginalises people of colour from narratives about the natural world. Miranda Forrester addresses the invisibility of Black women in western art history, while British designer and artist Samuel Ross shows a work made from mostly organic materials. Here, nature is fertile ground for the imagination. See what happens when it’s let loose.
