Enjoy this recap of Exhibition Walkthrough & In Conversation with Amartey Golding, which happened during the closing week of Winter 2023 exhibitions. The event started with an artist-led walkthrough of Amartey Golding's show at The Power Plant, In the comfort of embers. Later, joined by Toronto-based writer Neil Price and The Power Plant's Head of Curatorial Affairs Adelina Vlas, Golding shared what motivates and inspires his practice while diving deep into the context of works presented in the exhibition.

Amartey Golding (b. 1988, London; based in Norwich) is a visual artist who was raised as a Rastafarian to an Anglo-Scottish mother, Ghanaian father, and Jamaican stepfather. Through the use of sculpture, film, and 2D work, he explores the portrayal of Black masculinity in the media and homophobia within Black British communities.
