Overview

Madi Acharya-Baskerville presents a solo exhibition at The Lightbox, having undertaken an artist residency as part of the 20/20 project. Madi’s work responds to the site and grounds of Woking Palace, a former Tudor Palace on the edge of the River Wey, in Old Woking. This exhibition, Madi’s first in a public institution, combines ceramics, textiles, and found objects along with artworks made by community groups and finds from Woking Palace itself.

The 20/20 project is led by the UAL Decolonising Arts Institute and supported by funding from Arts Council England, the Freelands Foundation and University of the Arts London. The programme brings together 20 emerging or mid-career ethnically diverse artists who may identify as black, brown, or as people of colour, with 20 public art collections – leading to 20 new permanent acquisitions in museums and galleries across the UK.
