Dr Martin Luther King Jr Building welcomes second pop-up exhibition

22nd July, 2022

The second in a series of pop-ups has opened at the Dr Martin Luther King Building. On display until 30 October, Jupiter’s Son is a creative intervention exploring perspectives and experiences inspired by the Earle Collection of documents at the International Slavery Museum.

The installation explores perspectives, exchange and humanising experiences, confronting narratives to consider identity and how the experiences of the past manifest today. Focussing on the Earle Collection of documents, international artist Khaleb Brooks, hopes to bring a new perspective and greater visibility of the Liverpool history archive. 

Khaleb Brooks is an artist, researcher and writer exploring blackness, transness and collective memory. Through sculpture, printmaking, painting and performance, his work melds together memories of the middle passage, emancipation and disrupted identities, offering spaces of healing and mourning through surrealism.
