Brochure produced to accompany the exhibition, Passion: Blackwomens Creativity of the African Diaspora, originally shown at the Elbow Room in east London that then toured to Rochdale Art Gallery in 1989. Each artist has a panel within the document to use - there are texts, poems and interviews alongside featured documentation or reproduced drawings. The document is assembled in a DIY style which gives an immediacy and energy to the material. From the introduction by Maud Sulter: “During the London run of Passion at the Elbow Room east end studio space the exhibition received a wide audience of Blackwomen; including several artists and writers, as well as a varied range of other folk. In shifting the site from a quasi-domestic interior to Rochdale Art Gallery it must be recognised that any reading of the exhibition as a whole must be situated within an acknowledgement of the environment for which the works were originally commissioned.” The introduction is dated April 1989.
