15 June to 27 July 2019


This ground-breaking exhibition brings twenty artists and makers of African/Caribbean heritage to showcase their work, not previously seen in Farnham.

In relation to art, 'Diaspora' has been used to discuss artists who have migrated from one part of the world to another and who express their diverse experience of culture and identity in their work; often expressing alternative narratives, challenging ideas and structures of the art world.

The exhibition presents work by: Ade Adesina, Annie-Marie Akussah, Kwame Akpokavi, Lolonyo Amegayibor-Bunge, Darren Appiagyei, Dawn Beckles, Freya Bramble-Carter, Enam Gbewonyo, Atta Kwami, Wole Lagunju, Catherine Lucktaylor, Natalie Manima (Bespoke Binny), Jacqueline McFarlane, Rich Miller, Studio Nelle, Abe Odedina, Onome Otite, Mona Tabbicca, Robi Walters and Sharon Walters.

The exhibition is an exceptional opportunity to appreciate and collect work by these twenty artists who bring diverse and fresh narratives to the canon of art.

Bespoke Binny

Bespoke Binny is a British based business offering a range of handmade homeware and gifts items made from West African cloth.

The birth child of Natalie Manima, Bespoke Binny's products range from Pillows, Lampshades, Aprons, Oven gloves, table runners and card holders. "I created Bespoke Binny because I truly believe 'home is where the heart is' and having a home that is a reflection of you is essential to your well being." -

Living and working in London, as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, Natalie recognised the importance of one's home environment, in coping with issues such as anxiety and low mood.
Being of Ghanaian descent, Natalie grew up being surrounded by vibrant colours and prints, which she found to be uplifting, as a child. Motivated by her experience and love of sewing, Natalie went on built an eclectic homeware brand rooted in African expression.
