Title: Sonia Boyce, 11 December 1986 - 25 January 1987
AIR Gallery, 6 & 8 Rosebery Avenue, London
Guide contains 2 illustrations by the artist (uncredited). Lists a series of workshops with the artist and a discussion titled: ‘Have things changed? Tokenism and the current state of play in the visual arts‘ that took place on the 21 January 1987.

From a short text within the guide: “Sonia Boyce’s work is fundamentally auto biographical and presents her experiences of the community within which she was brought up. The drawings in the exhibition focus on themes of “domesticity, in particular the balance of power within domestic relationships. They question the differences between acceptable codes of behaviour and what are considered to be social taboos. In certain respects, her work might be considered to subvert conventional norms.”

“AIR (Information Registry of Art) sought to collect artists’ information, find new patrons, generate new audiences and ways to engage that audience in the visual arts. AIR was started by Peter Sedgley who believed that artists needed a more direct way for their work to reach the dealers and collectors without having to go through an intermediary gallery. AIR, located first in St. Katharine’s Dock, was non-selective and any artist could submit biographical details and slides of their work… AIR Gallery was homeless until 1979 when premises were obtained in Rosebery Avenue where SPACE and the AIR Gallery remained until 1986.

Sonia Boyce had a successful solo exhibition at AIR Gallery in the mid 1980s, while the gallery was under the directorship of Sara Selwood.
