Koestler Arts

Another Me

19 Sep – 3 Nov 2019

Unlock your preconceptions at this year’s exhibition of works entered into the Koestler Awards for arts in criminal justice, curated by Soweto Kinch.

Over 150 artworks, including music, poetry, paintings, drawings and sculpture, speak of their makers’ concerns, hopes and dreams, illuminating the breadth of talent in UK prisons and other secure settings.

Mercury-nominated and MOBO-winning Kinch, one of the most versatile young musicians in both the British jazz and hip-hop scenes, has used his curatorship to put music at the forefront of the exhibition for the first time.

Kinch comments, ‘As a composer and performer I’m often drawn to works with a powerful sense of narrative, and those which challenge myths and stereotypes.’

Another Me challenges expectations and illustrates what goes on beneath the surface of the human psyche, inviting visitors to reassess their perceptions of people who have spent time inside.

Another Me is the 12th exhibition produced by Koestler Arts in partnership with Southbank Centre.
