Join us for this talk with Dr Christine Checinska, taking place surrounded by and in the context of Francis’ exhibition, Beyond the Black Triangle. The presentation and Q&A will run until 7:30pm, after which there will be an opportunity to view the exhibition.

Checinska – who is the V&A’s Senior Curator of Africa and Diaspora: Textiles and Fashion and originator of the Africa Fashion exhibition – will draw on her own practice and research, using Francis’ exhibition as a jumping-off point to delve into key moments from Global African perspectives that have shaped the relationship between fashion, photography, style and agency from the 1950s to now.
