MeWe have teamed up with O2 mobile
communication network to create Changing
Faces, an exhibition documenting 2nd and
3rd Generation British Asian youth, spanning
over three decades, from 1970 to present day.
This is a unique and unprecedented body of
work, pulling together fresh and unseen images,
utilising existing photographic archives, personal
collections and documentary photographs from
Asian youth culture. The exhibition will show real
people in real situations finding and developing
their identity in a multicultural Britain.
This is not a gritty expose, nor another dip into
'eastern mysticism' or the exotic. It will not reek
of colonialism or stereotypical images using only
flowing fabrics or food. O2 Changing Faces
documents real-life images of an under-represented
subculture, whose transition through oppression to
empowerment has shaped their identities and
bettered their life experience.
