Significant Others: Maud Sulter in Relation image

A symposium in celebration of Scots-Ghanaian artist, photographer, writer, educator and feminist Maud Sulter (1960-2008).
Taking her iconic photographic series Significant Others (1993) as a starting point, we’ll trace the connections between Sulter’s photographs and her curatorial practice and networks. We’ll look at her legacy in relation to Black and queer feminist writing, artmaking and organising and reflect on her continuing influence in the context of art practice, collections and research.
The symposium complements curatorial work to spotlight the Significant Others series developed by Museum & Gallery Studies MLitt students at the Wardlaw Museum, University of St Andrews.
