WIP is a group exhibition featuring the self-curated work of Black Artists Union members, Jemini Baptiste, Oreka James, Sylvia Limbana and Ekow Stone, the 2022 Incite Foundation Residency artists at Centre for Artistic and Social Practice. Throughout their residency, the artists pushed the boundaries of their individual and collective practice, experimenting with new materials and approaches in screen printing, painting, video and installation. This exhibition is a celebration of the powerful and thoughtful work that emerged from these artists’ processes during their time in Centre’s studios. WIP is a testament to the power of ongoing collaboration and the transformation that can happen when artists come together to support each other and learn as a collective.
