Jerwood Foundation awards grant toward major exhibition at The Courtauld

Jerwood Foundation has awarded a grant to The Courtauld to support a major new exhibition of work by British artist Claudette Johnson, which will be presented at The Courtauld Gallery between 29 September 2023 and 14 January 2024. The exhibition is rooted in the ongoing research, teaching and activities in the field of Black and Diasporic British Art by Dorothy Price, Professor of Modern and Contemporary Art and Critical Race Art History at The Courtauld, who is co-curating the exhibition with Dr Barnaby Wright, Deputy Head of The Courtauld Gallery and Daniel Katz Curator of 20th Century Art. This will be the first monographic presentation of Johnson’s work at a major public gallery in London and it will offer audiences a compelling account of her achievement as an artist who has pioneered the use of drawing as a powerful voice for black women and men.
