For Oluwale II LIF


Experience the exhibition with added insight through creative spoken description and sign language.

Different tellings, different perspectives: get to grips with this unique David Oluwale exhibition through this additional spoken and signed description event.

For Oluwale II: experience the exhibition through creative spoken and sign language description

For Oluwale II is Rasheed Araeen’s response to the death of David Oluwale, which took place in Leeds fifty years ago. The Tetley’s exhibition brings the work to Leeds for the first time. It is shown alongside literature, newspaper cuttings and other materials relating to Oluwale.

This accompanying event aims to take a creative and experimental approach to accessibility, opening the exhibition up in new ways, using spoken word and British Sign Language. Several writers will each deliver a description of their chosen item in the exhibition. Their different styles and perspectives will depict both the detail and overall impact of Araeen’s work and the other exhibits, in remembrance of David Oluwale.
