Autograph presents Sharif Persaud: Have You Ever Had (Exhibition Opening), London


Price: Free


Egypt, by artist Sharif Persaud, 2016.

Join us to celebrate the opening of Sharif Persaud’s new exhibition Have You Ever Had .

Placing himself at the centre of his work, Persaud explores identity through his experience of contemporary life and autism. He is profoundly interested in his body in society as a site of investigation: sneezing, healthcare, hospitals, gangrene, cities, flats, benefits and his independence.

Have You Ever Had is the culmination of the UK-wide EXPLORERS Project, highlighting the extraordinary contribution neurodiverse people make to art and culture.
