We are excited to announce the opening of Weaving Through Sonorities, a group exhibition curated by Adama Keïta, running from 10th - 27th April 2024 at 56 Conduit Street. Articulated as a discourse on culture, power and representation, the exhibition explores the landscape of Caribbean cultural phenomena in (pre) - modernity whilst approaching Caribbean Sonorities by interiority. Drawing upon Stuart Hall’s Cultural Studies theory, the exhibition examines how cultural artifacts both reflect and influence society, probing the ways they can reinforce or challenge existing power structures, ideologies, and social representations. Public Programme: We are pleased to announce a weaving workshop with participating artist, Tania Arancia Marie, on the relationship between rhythmic textile practices and the concept of memory, on Saturday 13th of April, 2.30 - 4:30PM. Attendees will be taught different weaving techniques and will be invited to weave intuitively in response to a listening session. Please also join us for a talk between curator, Adama Keïta, and researcher, Henrique J Paris, as they discuss how Stuart Hall’s essays enrich curatorial discourse. Hosted at the gallery on Saturday 27th of April, 4.30 - 5.30PM.
