A new sound installation by composer Peter Adjaye comes to the Queen’s Presence Chamber in the Queen’s House Art Gallery. Created in response to The Armada Portrait, the work traces the painting’s legacies of empire and the roots of the transatlantic slave trade. Listen to compositions made in the Queen’s House Art Gallery with artists including;
– Bird la Bird
– Meera Chauda
– Natasha Lohan
– Randolph Matthews
– Brenda Montague
– Demba Sow
and others transmitted into the space via Zoom from Luzmira Zerpa, the London Lucumi Choir and the Voices in Motion Collective.
This immersive installation encourages a new way to re-imagine hidden histories and re-consider contemporary legacies of the Armada Portrait.
These voices represent the power and potential of Britain’s diverse culture, reaching across time and oceans to inform the future.
