Rachel Thibbotumunuwe is an artist, educator and curator. She creates artworks and projects that are part of her enquiry into icons of ethnicity and cultural identity, both historic and contemporary.
At the core of her artistic practice is a commitment to revealing new and hidden histories to enable new voices or narratives to emerge and influence how we ‘read’ history. Rachel is also fascinated by the history and consequences of photography; it’s birth at the dawn of industry and subsequent rise of its abundance in mass culture.
Rachel will talk about a recent project, Migration Museum, with untitled projects, which has involved conversations and collaborations with curators at Glasgow Museum Resource Centre exploring ideas and identities relating to migration.
Rachel graduated from Glasgow School of Art’s department of Fine Art Photography in 1998 and has exhibited in Scotland, Norway, Japan and Germany.
