Grand Union is delighted to announce Simon Says/Dadda, an exhibition by Birmingham and London based artist Beverley Bennett. Comprising a newly commissioned 3-channel installation, Simon Says/Dadda is a collaborative project exploring father/daughter relationships among Black and Asian women and non-binary individuals, highlighting the deep impact that structural inequalities have within wider society.

Working in partnership with Metal, Liverpool, LUX, London and The Newbridge Project, Newcastle, Simon Says/Dadda is an ambitious large-scale film project developed through a series of gatherings across England, bringing to light stories that are currently not represented in the visual arts space.
