Solo Exhibition

Tavares Strachan - There Is Light Somewhere Hayward Gallery

This is is the first mid-career survey dedicated to the work of Tavares Strachan.

The exhibition showcases the remarkably inventive ways in which Strachan has celebrated unsung explorers and cultural trailblazers, inviting audiences to engage with overlooked characters whose stories represent and illuminate histories hidden by bias.

Featuring monumental new sculptural commissions alongside striking large-scale collages, neon works, bronze and ceramic sculptures, and mixed-media installations, the exhibition takes visitors on a journey of discovery and recovery that is simultaneously playful and impactful.

Strachan’s vividly realised stories of erasure and remembrance shine a light not only on histories of colonialism and racism, but also on the universal desire for a sense of belonging.
