Sokari Douglas Camp CBE: Jonkonnu Masquerade

16th June – 23rd July

The October Gallery upcoming exhibition will be a solo show by artist Sokari Douglas Camp themed around carnival and masquerade. Douglas Camp will create new works exploring the masquerade of ‘Jonkonnu’ both within its Caribbean context and that of the broader African diaspora.

The art education workshops will focus on 3D making, creating sculptural forms inspired by the exhibition with our fabulous Artist Educator and 3D maker Hannah Littlejones.

“The Notting Hill Carnival has been cancelled due to the pandemic for nearly three years now. The Carnival nourished London, especially the international communities in the city. I propose an exhibition of Carnival characters that I hope will lift spirits. Playing with the idea of dressing up as a character, an African character with Western clothing, my maquettes focus on men dressed up and explore gender fluidity”
