Room at the Top

Group show at Nicola Jacobs Gallery. 1985
Date: 6 February, 1985 until 9 March, 1985
Curator: Waldemar Januszczak
Organiser: Nicola Jacobs Gallery

Room at the Top, was a group exhibition curated by Waldemar Januszczak. The exhibition took place at Nicola Jacobs Gallery, 9 Cork Street, 6 February - 9 March 1985. The artists included in the exhibition were: Sonia Boyce, Mary Mabbutt, Paul Richards, Gerard De Thame, and Adrian Wiszniewski. The exhibition was one of the very few such undertakings, during the 1980s, in which the work of a Black artist (in this instance, Sonia Boyce), was exhibited alongside work by white artists. Boyce was for a while an artist with whom Januszczak, (at the time, visual arts reviewer for the Guardian), was particularly impressed. All these artists’ work was figurative.
