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.”

Action

Group show at The Bluecoat Gallery. 2010
Date: 30 January, 2010 until 28 March, 2010
Curator: Sonia Boyce
Organiser: Bluecoat

Exhibited concurrently with Sonia Boyce’s Like Love Parts One & Two, Action was at the Bluecoat, 30/1/10 - 28/3/10. Curated by Boyce, the publicity for the exhibition claimed that Action and Boyce were ‘introducing’ a number of artists, though one of the four artists selected, Grace Ndiritu was by this time an accomplished and widely exhibited artist. The others in the Action exhibition were Beverley Bennett, Appau Boayke-Yiadom, and Robin Deacon.

Each of the artists had his/her own section of the gallery, presenting, as it were, four solo exhibitions. The exhibition marked an important opportunity for a number of the artists.
