Fifty women leave everything behind to board a boat in North Africa and flee across the Mediterranean.

detail

Fifty women leave everything behind to board a boat in North Africa and flee across the Mediterranean. They are escaping forced marriage, hoping for protection and assistance, seeking asylum in Greece.

Written 2,500 years ago, one of the world’s oldest plays speaks to us through the ages with startling resonance for our troubled times.

Featuring a chorus of local women from London, this is part play, part ritual. Director Ramin Gray unearths an electric connection to the deepest and most mysterious ideas of humanity – who are we, where do we belong and if all goes wrong – who will take us in?

Stan Douglas @ Victoria Miro Mayfair
Until 20 Dec Free

about


The first in a new series of works triggered by the uprisings of the early 2010s, including the Arab Spring and riots across global locations including London and the artist’s home town of Vancouver, these photographs focus on two scenes associated with events in London in August 2011: Mare Street in Hackney Central, and Hackney Downs, where events were focused around the Pembury Estate.

The works look at racial and class tensions and at confrontation and its aftermath, asking us to revisit recent history and consider the countless stories and fragments of reality in which truth and empathy lie.

‘I think it’s important to remember what happened and not to let it be identified as just some sort of hooliganism, or opportunism. Something else is going on.’ – Stan Douglas

To create the panoramic mise-en-scènes on display, Douglas conducted intensive research, mining sources including contemporary aerial news reports and still images.

Stan Firm Inna Inglan Tate Britain
Until 19 Nov | Free admission

info

Exhibition. Explore the experience of those who traveled from the Caribbean and West Africa to live in London

detail

This display brings together works from the 1960s and 1970s by eight photographers who documented Black communities in London: Raphael Albert, Bandele ‘Tex’ Ajetunmobi, James Barnor, Colin Jones, Neil Kenlock, Dennis Morris, Syd Shelton and Al Vandenberg.

The photographs reveal the many and varied experiences of individuals who travelled from the Caribbean region and West Africa to live in London, from everyday family life to political engagement. They show people as they respond to, react against and move beyond the racial tension and exclusion that were part of life for Black communities in the British capital. The title of the display, ‘Stan Firm inna Inglan’, is taken from the poem It Dread Inna Inglan by Linton Kwesi Johnson, who in the 1970s gave a voice and poetic form to the Afro-Caribbean diaspora and its resistance in the face of racism.

Arthur Jafa: Love is the Message, the Message is Death @ Store Studios
Until 10 Dec Free Entry

about


Love Is The Message, The Message Is Death, is an eight-minute film consisting of clips and photographs from all avenues of Black life and media in all forms. From music visuals, video art, YouTube videos, dash-cam footage and photographs, Jafa’s piece presents still visuals of the everyday reality of Black folks. Soundtracking Kanye’s, “Ultralight Beam” over raw footage (both past and present), the filmmaker also included photos of Malcolm X, Dr. King, President Obama, Beyonce, Nina Simone, Jimi Hendrix and Lebron James.

Arthur Jafa exhibits Love is the Message, the Message is Death (2016) in a site-specific installation.

detail


Jafa’s work is a convergence of found footage that traces African-American identity through a vast spectrum of contemporary imagery. The meticulously edited 7-minute video jumps from photographs of civil rights leaders to helicopter views of the LA riots, suspending viewers in an emotional montage that is a testament to Jafa’s masterful ability to juxtapose and sequence footage and that poignantly embodies the artist’s desire to create a cinema that ‘replicates the power, beauty and alienation of Black Music’.

Arthur Jafa is a director, filmmaker, and cinematographer who has used his platform to promote and express Black culture through a variety of mediums.

Age of Terror: Art Since 9/11 @ IWM
Until 28 May 2018 Tickets from £15/£7.50

about


The UK’s first major exhibition of artists’ responses to war and conflict since the terrorist attacks on 11 September 2001. Age of Terror: Art since 9/11 will feature more than 40 British and international artists, including Ai Weiwei, Grayson Perry, Gerhard Richter, Jenny Holzer, Mona Hatoum, Alfredo Jaar, Coco Fusco and Jake & Dinos Chapman.

detail


The complex issues surrounding the global response to 9/11, the nature of modern warfare and the continuing state of emergency in which we find ourselves have become compelling subject matter for contemporary artists.

Artists’ unique ways of communicating through their art provide different levels of understanding. The stories they tell, whether first or second-hand, come from alternative viewpoints not always reflected in the mainstream media, often challenge our perceptions.

Through 50 works of art including film, sculpture, painting, installations, photography and prints, many of which will be exhibited publically in the UK for the first time, this exhibition highlights the crucial role of artists in representing contemporary conflict.
