Title: Sonia Boyce, The AIR Gallery, London, 25 January 1987
Author: Maud Sulter
Review contains an uncredited reproduction of a painting by Sonia Boyce.

An extract from the review: “The failure of this show is neither the standard of the work for Sonia Boyce is a fine technician, nor the rushed cacophony of multi-cultural images in the downstairs gallery, but the lack of new cultural debate for the Black exhibition audience. And who else should the primary audience be? All of the drawings shown upstairs bar one have been shown elsewhere.”
