We're Not New Here

Wed, November 27, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Anton Greenaway and friends find new ways to respond to the art on display in Open Your Eyes and the world we live in.

The art of the African diaspora and post-colonial nations often offers challenges to the received wisdom and rational of the west, as novel as the pieces in the Open Your Eyes exhibition may appear they express sentiments familiar to rap music’s initial audience. By treating the work of artists such Wu-Tang Clan and Stormzy among others as texts we’ll explore the different ways the same thing has been said.

Followed by Q&A and a drinks reception. Admission free.
