Thursday 4th November and 22nd November, Regent Street Cinema

Online gathering and in person screening event to explore collective and disparate work by black artists and artists of colour living in Britain and the diaspora.

Welcome. Join us for the second seminar and screening event this November.

ARCHIVAL DISORIENTATION – event and film screening asks the questions:

How can archival experimentation help us contend with, question and interrogate the narrative the nation tells about itself through the work of black artists and artists of colour in Britain? 

These gatherings hosted by Creating Interference, aim to address the impasse we are currently facing by applying non-linear, collective and fragmentary methodologies to the work of black artists and artists of colour situated in Britain and the diaspora. They will address critical questions relating to intertwined histories of empire, memory, forgetting, radical collecting practices and the process of unsettling national archives. 

Join us for these November events. Please book your place here.

Thursday 4th November (eve) we are excited to support an online seminar convened by artist Barby Asante entitled Archival Disorientation who will be joined by Nydia Swaby and other collaborators and friends to draw on the impasse facing archival studies. This conversation aims to explore a range of methodologies enacted to produce archival disorientation through experimentation, diasporic memory rituals and pleasure.

Biographies available here with a great line up of colleagues and friends: Ra Malika Imhotep, Barby Asante, Nathalie Mba Bikoro and chaired by Nydia A. Swaby.

Please join us in supporting the enjoyment of this wonderful work that speaks back!
