In Gallery Two we are currently presenting the first solo exhibition in a UK institution of Peruvian artist Claudia Martínez Garay. This major new commission celebrates the artist’s unique perspective and diverse practice with an ambitious site-specific installation in our largest gallery space.

This exhibition walkthrough exploring Martínez Garay's exhibition will be in the spirit of the Uncomfortable tours: by bringing attention to uncomfortable truths, it will encourage participants to question their assumptions, confront biases, and consider alternative viewpoints.

Uncomfortable Cambridge was founded by doctoral history students, with the aim of raising questions about the ‘uncomfortable’ legacies of inequality and imperialism in the city and university. It is a certified Social Enterprise, meaning all profits generated by its activities are reinvested in the local community and in activities that uphold its social mission. It is an extension of the work done by Uncomfortable Oxford, founded in 2018. Their shared mission is to collaboratively challenge Britain’s role in creating the uncomfortable histories and legacies of privilege, power, inequalities, imperialism, and discrimination around the world. They provide opportunities for research-informed public dialogue that question established narratives and break down institutional barriers in order to advocate for justice and accountability.
