Itinerant Imaginaries: Archival Disorientation #2 Film Screening

Monday 22 November 2021, 17.00–20.00

Join us for an in-person screening at Regent Street Cinema, London, curated by Creating Interference in collaboration with Cairo Clarke.

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

We have been exploring the work by artists from the African, Caribbean, and Asian diaspora who are radically changing our relationship to histories and ancestral memories through artistic practice. These works contribute to challenging static, patriarchal monumental structures and narratives and posit new ways of thinking through histories for our future scapes. Please join us in supporting and engaging with these timely and pressing works. 

This final in-person event at Regent Street Cinema, will screen experimental short films by artists that enact archival disorientation through experimentation, diasporic memory ritual and pleasure. The films propose routes for displacing and rewriting authorised histories. Featuring short experimental works by Ebun SodipoGrace NdirituJeannette EhlersJuliana KasumuNatasha Thembiso RuwonaNathalie Anguezomo Mba BikoroOtobong Nkanga and Zinzi Minott. The screening will be followed by a short discussion to reflect on these alternative narratives of history. 

Please join us in person, to enjoy the big screen and engage with this exciting, cutting edge work.

Doors will open at 17:00. Screening starts at 17:15. In-person attendance will be limited to 80 attendees. If you book a place and cannot attend the event, please ensure that you cancel your booking via Eventbrite, so this can be released for another attendee.
