Subtitle Labs, hosted by Pi Artworks, are proud to present their inaugural launch “Passports Please” a group show from seven of the UK’s leading emerging artists exploring identity, through heritage and empowerment. The launch navigates identity from the perspective of seven diverse backgrounds with a common goal in empowering minorities from all walks of life.
In partnership with Stop Uyghur Genocide, a grassroots campaign to end the atrocities against Muslims in China, Subtitle will be exhibiting new and exclusive original artworks and limited editions prints with 10% of the originals and 100% of the print sales going to the campaign.
Divine Southgate-Smith, currently enrolled at the Royal Academy of Arts, is a British trans-disciplinary artist whose work will question articulations of a black, queer, and female experience. Eve De Haan (Half a Roast Chicken) the UK’s leading neon artist, who has exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery and worked with the Tate will showcase works through bold neon catchphrases and short snippets of text to evoke collective emotions of self-belief and empowerment in her audience.
Ofunne Azinge, a Nigerian British painter, who recently won The Arts Club Award 2021 at the Royal Academy of Arts, will be exhibiting two new paintings inspired from various aspects of her life including the socio-political effects of migration, nostalgia and the complexities of her upbringing.
Tyler Lurks, a recent graduate from Central Saint Martins, work is inspired by a non-western conception of repair in which accepted historical narratives are reopened and then transmuted through painting onto salvaged offcuts of wood. Within this he will explore the concepts of empathy within humanity. Why Reuben? – an anonymous graffiti artist – has grown a cult following in 2021 in East London and will showcase the complexities of a diverse heritage.
Coral Garvey is an American Korean multidisciplinary artist living in London with work that has expanded into globally branded campaigns for Adidas. She will be showcasing her dystopian-tech-noir fine art collection “The Invisible Rules”, which explores personal and cultural identity.
