Join us for a tour of Congo Dialogues: Sammy Baloji and Alice Seeley Harris, led by curator Mark Sealy MBE, Director of Autograph ABP.

Autograph ABP presents a rarely seen archive dating from 1904, created by English missionary Alice Seeley Harris in the Congo Free State. These pioneering photographs publicly exposed the violent consequences of human rights abuses at the turn of the century, and are exhibited alongside newly commissioned work from acclaimed contemporary Congolese artist Sammy Baloji.
