  • Visitor Information

A group of around 100 interdisciplinary artists come together at Somerset House to celebrate the past 50 years of black creativity in Britain and beyond. Get Up, Stand Up Now is curated by Zak Ove whose father, Horace, was the creator of the first feature film by a Black British director. He has invited the artists selected to exhibit for their groundbreaking work. It begins with the radical film maker Horace Ove and his circle of Windrush generation peers and extends to contemporary artists like A Guy Called Gerald and Sir David Adjaye. The result is a multi-sensory experience spanning art, film, photography and music with Trinidadian DJ Jillionaire creating an original soundtrack for the exhibition.
