We congratulate fellow Samson Kambalu for the upcoming reveal of his sculpture work on the prestigous Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square. Antelope by Samson Kambalu will occupy one of the highest profile public art spaces in world from September 2022 till 2024.
Antelope by Samson Kambalu restages a 1914 photograph of Baptist preacher and pan-Africanist John Chilembwe, and European missionary John Chorley as a sculpture. Chilembwe has his hat on, defying the colonial rule that forbade Africans from wearing hats in front of white people.
