Tosin Adeosun On Rita Keegan at South London Gallery

As a curator and visual art researcher interested in activating archives of Black art, looking into Rita Keegan and SLG’s archive presented a fresh perspective of aspects of Keegan’s life, artistic practice and her local community in South London during the pivotal UK Black Arts Movement.  Undertaking this research project provided a lens to look at intersections of race, gender and family history through Keegan’s archive.
