Work by Leslie Morgan

Dr Leslie Morgan, UK-born of Anglo-Indian parentage, exhibited in Creation for Liberation, one of the early shows of Black Art at the Brixton Art Gallery in 1984 before moving to Australia in 1989. His art practice and writing concerns race, diaspora, migration cultural hybridity and whiteness. In 2016 he held a UK residency at ACME Studios, visiting third generation artists of migrant backgrounds and new migrant artists, to explore the thinking around visual representation concerning race, cultural difference and identity, particularly what has shifted and what remains unresolved. He is author of two books 'Illegal Action' (2005), 'The Significance of Diaspora Politics in the Visual Arts' (2008) and various journal articles.
