Join contemporary artist EVEWRIGHT as he explores the ideas around alternative space and challenges perceptions of where art can be experienced and enjoyed.
He will discuss the black artist gaze, storytelling, sound installation and why he uses the medium of photo etching as a means of telling and preserving Black British stories.
The event coincides with our staging of EVEWRIGHT’s Caribbean Takeaway Takeover: Identities and stories, an interactive pop-up art and sound installation showcasing the stories of Windrush generation elders by artist EVEWRIGHT that will be on display at the Migration Museum throughout June.
Please register in advance for this free event to guarantee participation on the evening.
This event is part of our TalkingART series of lates. Our TalkingART Lates are a series of free and informal conversations with artists, photographers, oral historians and more, as they reflect on their personal experiences in using different art forms to tell diverse stories. All are welcome – drinks and nibbles will be available.
