The Zabludowicz Collection is delighted to loan Hurvin Anderson's Peter's Sitters II (2009) to the National Portrait Gallery as part of their exhibition 'The Time is Always Now - Artists Reframe the Black Figure', from 22 February to 19 May 2024.

The exhibition, curated by writer Ekow Eshun, showcases the work of contemporary artists from the African diaspora, including Michael Armitage, Lubaina Himid, Kerry James Marshall, Toyin Ojih Odutola and Amy Sherald, and highlights the use of figures to illuminate the richness and complexity of Black life. As well as surveying the presence of the Black figure in Western art history, we examine its absence – and the story of representation told through these works, as well as the social, psychological and cultural contexts in which they were produced.

Further information on the exhibition can be found on National Portrait Gallery website.
