Bios

Rochelle White is a London-based visual artist who works primarily within photographic mediums, moving image and installation. White’s work investigates the fabric of cultural and racial identity resulting in a union of bold contemporary and traditional references, often loaded with symbolism specific to and rooted in unspoken diasporic understandings. Drawing from the personal, White’s work studies the nuances of the Black-Caribbean experience in Britain as a third-generation immigrant with focus on spiritualism, consumption and migration.

Graduating from Camberwell College of The Arts in 2016, White continues to work on various collaborative projects and workshops. In 2017 White partnered with Bold Tendencies’ Sasha Morgan to launch Eating At the Same Table (EAST) a networking programme for emerging artists of colour which aims to support and facilitate creatives as they navigate their careers. Last September EAST curated their inaugural annual event, Phantasy Art School, an all-day event dedicated to facilitating alternative modes of arts education through discussion, live art-making, lectures and movement. Most recently, EAST worked in collaboration with Grace Wales Bonner to host a reading group on Black Spiritualism at her Serpentine Galleries show, A Time for New Dreams.
