Maud Sulter (1960–2008) was an award-winning artist and writer, curator and gallerist of Ghanain and Scottish heritage who lived and worked in Britain.
Her significance lies in her pioneering innovation of photographic forms that investigated the visual representation of black women, not through the more familiar routes of documentary, but through critical inquiry into art's histories and sustained visual interrogation into the canon of western art. Her works were often preoccupied with lost and neglected figures, examining the ways that the past shapes and can remake the present.
She won critical praise for her bold, solemn and exquisitely produced works with their sensual splendour and inventive image construction, and her later self-portraits were applauded for their beauty, sensuality, confidence and ability to dramatise a situation.

Part of our ongoing research on Maud Sulter
Working with Deborah Cherry and Ajamu, our research is collating the genealogies of practice that structured Sulter's artwork, writing and curating, and examining the connections between her practice and activism in feminist and Black arts movements in Europe and North America.
There has been no detailed exhibition of Sulter's work since 2003. Our aim is for this research to culminate in a major exhibition at Street Level Photoworks in Glasgow on her multilayered practice across image, sound and text.
