Claudette Johnson: I Came to Dance at MAO

Artist Claudette Johnson has a major solo exhibition open at Modern Art Oxford “I Came To Dance” see https://www.modernartoxford.org.uk/event/claudette-johnson/ 

“Intimate, powerful and sometimes deliberately uncomfortable, Claudette Johnson’s studies of black men and women demand attention and command respect. This show is an overview of one of the most accomplished figurative artists working in Britain today, and the first major institutional solo exhibition since 1990 of London-based artist Claudette Johnson (born 1959, Manchester).”
