Coloured™: A solo exhibition by Roberta Joy Rich

Roberta Rich is an emerging artist working across Australia and South Africa, who responds to constructions of race and gender identity in her multi-disciplinary projects. With a keen focus on language, Rich draws from personal, historical, socio-political and pop culture to engage with notions of ‘authentic’ identity.

This solo exhibition considers and explores questions of what it means to be ‘Coloured’ and attachments to such language, notions of denial and being denied – particularly within a South African “Coloured” context both pre and post Apartheid – the people of District Six (and forced removals) and the complexities of place and belonging within African diaspora identities.
