Gallery Tour of The Unfinished Conversation

Saturday 1 June, 12pm

New Art Exchange


Past event

Tether, an artist collective that produce online video broadcasts around contemporary art (and current NAE ExperiMentor), will discuss John Akomfrah's fim work The Unfinished Conversation.

During this informal gallery tour you will learn more about the artists and have the opportunity to exchange your opinions about the show.

Autograph ABP have commissioned John Akomfrah to create a new film. In this multi-layered three-screen installation, The Unfinished Conversation examines the nature of the visual as triggered across an individual’s memory landscape. With particular reference to identity and race, the film presents academic Stuart Hall’s memories and personal archives, extracted and relocated in an imagined and different time to reflect on the questionable nature of memory itself.
