This exhibition will be on display 16 April – 16 June 2021 in the Street Gallery, University College Hospital, 235 Euston Road NW1 2BU (subject to visiting restrictions).

In late 2020, Platform Black were invited by UCLH arts and heritage to curate an exhibition in the Street Gallery space.

Rest and Repair is Platform Black’s first exhibition in London curated by co-founders Tobi Alexandra Falade and Alicia-Pearl Cato. This group exhibition features emerging artists whose work explores the lived experiences of black women and draws on themes of identity, resilience, and community, using mediums such as oil, acrylic, and digital painting, collage, installation, sound and moving image. With this exhibition, we hope to foster interactions and encounters that uplift and inspire in turbulent times.

Platform Black is a visual arts community that highlights the work of Black Creatives and connects with communities of professionals and resources, to transform institutions. 

UCLH arts and heritage is the hospital arts and heritage project that serves UCLH NHS Foundation Trust and its surrounding community and is funded entirely by charitable donations and fundraising. UCLH arts and heritage is committed to providing a welcoming, uplifting environment for all patients, visitors and staff through the use of a varied and stimulating arts and heritage programme. Its work aims to improve the patient experience, boost staff morale, increase engagement with the arts and celebrate the Trust’s unique heritage and community.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of events, details of these can be found here:
