Pamela Golden was born in Chicago in 1959, and studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Having lived and worked in the UK since 1989, Golden often integrates her own cross-cultural referencing into the work. Best known for her small-scale paintings based on archive photographs, she has recently experimented with larger digital works and sound pieces. She is represented by Marlborough Contemporary London

Rita Keegan, Bronx born and educated at New York High School of Art and Design and the San Francisco Art Institute, has been based in England since 1979. She has, since then, been engaged in the growth of black art in the UK and been involved with numerous artist run initiatives and explored issues of identity and representation. The use of family narrative and autobiography features strongly in her work. Trained originally as a painter, over the last twenty years she has experimented widely with lens-based media, using the photocopier and computer in both 2D and installation work.

This event was organised by Chelsea MA students Rosemary Cronin and Jennifer Arboine
