Venice Biennale: Britain’s New Voices airs on 2 Sep on BBC-2

In this film made before the Grenfell Tower tragedy, presenter Brenda Emmanus follows a group of emerging, diverse artists as they launch the first ever Diaspora Pavilion in a Venetian Palazzo during The Venice Biennale – the so called Olympics of modern art.

One of the artists we meet is 24 year-old photographer Khadija Saye, who died on 24 June 2017 in her home. We follow Khadija and the other emerging artists as they discover new art inspiration across the city, navigate networking at VIP launch parties, and most importantly find out what the critics and taste-makers verdict is on the exhibition’s opening night.

Venice Biennale: Britain’s New Voices airs Saturday 2 September 2017 from 7.25pm-8.00pm on BBC TWO.
