At Home with Vanley Burke


  • Ikon Gallery 7 Oozells St Birmingham, B1 2HS United Kingdom (map)

Born in Jamaica in 1951, artist Vanley Burke has lived in Birmingham since 1965 and is renowned as a photographer concerned especially with black culture in Britain. This summer the entire contents of his flat in Nechells, north-east Birmingham, will be transferred to Ikon’s first floor galleries. A vast archive of posters, books, clothes, records, ornaments and countless other items, it provides an invaluable insight into Birmingham’s African Caribbean communities.
