Monica de Miranda’s research-led practice is grounded in postcolonial politics in relation to Africa and its diaspora. Her most recent project The Island (2021) contemplates the complex experiences of Afrodiasporic lives and Europe’s colonial past. Fusing fact and fiction, the work explores a long trajectory of black presences in Portugal by bringing together intertwined narratives – drawing on African liberation movements, migratory experiences, and identity formations through
a black feminist lens.

The Island is commissioned by Autograph, London and supported using public funding from Arts Council England. The exhibition is supported by the
Finnish Heritage Agency.
