The Stars are Bright: Zimbabwe through the eyes of its young painters from Cyrene (1940-1947), 15 July – 30 September 2020, The Theatre Courtyard Green Rooms

Explore a rediscovered collection of extraordinary paintings and drawings by over forty young Zimbabwean artists that have not been exhibited together for almost 70 years at The Stars are Bright, a new exhibition in Shoreditch.  All of these talented painters attended Cyrene, a mission school founded in 1940 in colonial Zimbabwe and located amidst varied and colourful natural surroundings that inspired the visual imagination of the students. 

The Belvedere Trust is proud to offer this exhibition to the residents of London as it eases out of lockdown, in a setting that prioritises your health and safety. Admission is free subject to booking a time slot online in advance.
