The Storey Institute

Lancaster, United Kingdom

The Storey Institute, Meeting House Lane, Lancaster, was the venue for Us an’ Dem [Us and Them]: an exhibition of work by Faisal Abdu’Allah, Denzil Forrester, and Tam Joseph, curated by Eddie Chambers, held at 18/3/94 - 15/4/94.

Extracts from the press release: “Us an’ Dem is an exhibition that attempts to take a critical look at relationships bettween the police, the judiciary and the Black community. The exhibition presents three artists’ responses to these issues. All three artists are of African-Caribbean origin, and all are resident in the London area. Faisal Abdu’Allah was born in London. Denzil Forrester was born in Grenada, and Tam Joseph was born in Dominica… Us an’ dem is not an optimistic exhibition, though it decisively demonstrates that the Black communitry continues to have genuine and deep-seated anxieties, frustrations and concerns about the state of its relationships with the collective forces of ‘law and order’.”

A boxed catalogue with 15 postcards was produced to accompany the exhibition.

The title of the exhibition was taken from a poem, Us an Dem, by Benjamin Zephaniah, who opened the exhibition.
