JOY GREGORY GETS RAMM COMMISSION

 

The Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM) in Exeter has commissioned photographer Joy Gregory to develop and produce new work not currently featured in their collection for their 2020 year of Untold Stories.

Gregory, of Jamaican parentage, describes RAMM as “an award-winning, fully accredited museum of national and international significance which has been at the heart of Exeter’s cultural life since 1868.” According to Joy, the museum will reconsider and reinterpret its collections to shine a light on remarkable people, hidden histories and neglected communities in celebration of diversity. “It is a tremendous opportunity to give voice to those perspectives that have previously been overlooked,” she says.
