Birmingham, UK

Free Admission

MAC presents an exhibition of works by Autograph ABP's 2018 Light Work Artist-in-Residence Andrew Jackson titled From a Small Island. This new series of work explores themes of identity, migration, memory and family.

Following a visit to Jamaica in 2017, Jackson investigates the identities of Jamaican Diaspora since the post-war migration to Britain, and the lives of second and third generation migrants born here. 

"No one on that ship...thought we'd be leaving home forever, but when my father hugged me on the dockside, for some reason, I knew I'd never see him again as I had never seen him cry before. I still see my father; you know, in my mind at least...after all these years...but I can't see his face. No matter how hard I try...I never see his face." - Amy Jackson, Artist's Mother 

The exhibition is kindly supported by Arts Council England and The Roughly Trust.
