Over four weeks, Bass Culture 70/50 will explore the legacy of the Windrush generation and the profound impact of Jamaican and Jamaican-inspired music on British identity, spanning reggae and dub to jungle and grime.
Through unseen artwork, specially commissioned film, top industry speakers, UK reggae label pop-up showcases, live performances, and over 70 hours of individual testimonies, the exhibition will celebrate 70 years since the arrival of the Windrush generation and 50 years since the advent of British reggae, illustrating the cultural significance of these events in the present wake of increased marginalisation and opposition.
Contributors include Benjamin Zephaniah, Steel Pulse, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Sir Lloyd Coxsone, Don Letts, Blacker Dread, Carroll Thompson, and Janet Kay.
The exhibition, which is free to attend, is in partnership with the AHRC, Black Cultural Archives, British Library, SOAS, Goldsmiths University, Urbanimage, Camera Press, and Fully Focused.
