Points of Departure: Photography from Senegal by Mamadou Gomis and Judith Quax

The transatlantic slave trade and contemporary migration from West Africa are at the heart of this migration-themed exhibition.

Photographers Mamadou Gomis and Judith Quax work in Senegal, a nation which has lost many of its people over the centuries to migration, both forced and voluntary.

The exhibition connects Senegal's past with its present by photographing the responses of visitors to the country's House of Slaves, a museum which is visited by both foreigners and descendants of slaves.

Located on Gorée Island, just off the coast of the capital Dakar, the museum opened in 1962 as a memorial to the Atlantic slave trade.

Mon 12.00-16.30 Tues-Sun 10.00-16.30
