Zabat - Maud Sulter | Photoworks

Solo show at Camerawork, Rochdale Art Gallery. 1989
Date: 30 September, 1989 until 11 November, 1989
Organiser: Rochdale Gallery

Maud Sulter is a young black Glaswegian writer and artist and in her recent work she explores issues of race, gender and creativity through the traditional genre of the portrait. Using large Cibachrome prints of idealised images of young black women to represent the Nine Muses, she has provided texts for each muse. The title of the exhibition Zabat: the “poetics of a Family tree refers to a sacred dance performed by groups of 13, an occasion of power (as in the witches’ sabbat) and a black woman’s rite of passage.”

Sue Hubbard writing about the exhibition, in 20/20 magazine, August 1990, page 86.

Exhibition opened at Rochdale Art Gallery and toured to Street Level Gallery, Glasgow, Untitled Gallery, Sheffield and Camerawork, London.
