Part of the Black Chronicles Archive Laboratory on display at Autograph ABP, this event marks the preview of The African Choir 1891 Re-Imagined, a new sound/image installation by composers Philip Miller and Thuthuka Sibisi.
This roundtable discussion will explore the artistic and curatorial challenges when re-articulating historical material using sound and the archive, and introduce the story of The African Choir, whose portraits will be on display in the gallery.
Participants include: Philip Miller, Thuthuka Sibisi (via Skype) in conversation with Professor Tamar Garb and Renée Mussai, Curator and Head of Archive at Autograph ABP. Invited guest speakers to be confirmed.
