Description Reflecting on the 1980s, Next We Change Earth is a fresh look at the aims of the ‘Trent Boys’ – a collective of students including Piper, Adrus, Donald Rodney and Stewart from Nottingham Trent University - who came together to challenge both the mainstream art world and the wider, racially exclusive, political system. Dubbed the Black Art Movement, the founders achieved national and international recognition, and this exhibition will serve to present new commissions which reflect on the issues faced by artists today. The artworks will create an exchange around notions of history, identity, and location. Featured artists include; Said Adrus, Samson Kambalu, Keith Piper, Gary Stewart in collaboration with Trevor Mathison and Obinna Nwosu, Elshaday Berhane, Michael Forbes, Harjeet Kaur, Hetain Patel, Nazir Tanbouli, & Andrew Wright. The exhibition is curated by David Schischka Thomas and Michael Forbes who have commissioned the new work for the show.
