THE long-awaited LandFall Exhibition coming soon to the Museum of London Docklands presents us with an amalgamation of sculpture, painting, poetry, music, collage and textiles.
The mishmash of arts explores the Atlantic Ocean as a 'natural phenomena, transporter of dreams and peoples', according to the blurb. It is steeped in history and slave trade references, in a rare and creative offering for eyes and ears.
Focussing on the intricate relationship between Africa, Europe and the Americas, the exhibition hopes to demonstrate different aspects of the ocean itself, slavery, history and cultures affected by transportation.

LandFall follows on from Tradewinds, the exhibition in the London Sugar and Slavery gallery at the museum which explores the history of transatlantic slave trade. It contains portraiture, ceramics and many other representations and art forms.
The exhibition includes work by Beth Secor, Faisal Abdu' Allah, Godfried Donkor, Jamal Cyrus, Ingrid Pollard, Dorothea Smartt and Dominique Le Gendre. It is showing at the Museum of London Docklands, West India Quay, Canary Warf until May 31.
