Beaconsfield, 22 Newport Street, London SE11 6AY. Dreams and Guilt. Exhibiting counter-narratives invites artist-researchers to share their experiences of surfacing diasporic stories in the UK. The symposium asks:
What drives us in bringing to light repressed histories, often linked to our own place of origin? What are the commonalities and the differences between these silenced voices and the ways we attempt to access them?
What are the barriers to the public sharing of buried histories and why might a visual art framework and the mechanisms of processual installation be conducive to articulating counter-memories?
Presentations by Jumana Abboud, Sohaila Baluch, Hennie Lee and Iulia Mărăcine, Ioana Marinescu, Bindu Mehra, Roxy Rezvany, Naomi Siderfin, Shino Yanai. A small number of audience tickets are available at Eventbrite. Lunch included
