Event description

Description

What is driving artists to use vintage video footage as a source material to explore ideas of African diaspora identity and history? Is archive imagery a means to craft works grounded in authentic documentation of events? Or a way to create new fictions and new futures, from the fragments of the past? And what are the freedoms or constraints artists find in working with such elusive, fugitive images? GAYLENE GOULD (Head of Cinema and Events at British Film Institute) in conversation with artists NT, APPAU JNR BOAKYE-YIADOM and ONYEKA IGWE.

This event is a part of FORUM, 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair's Programme of talks, performances and screenings. Entry to the talks is free for all the ticket holders of 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair. Further information on how to purchase tickets for the fair here.
