A collective reading event organised as part of Onyeka Igwe's solo exhibition 'a so-called archive'


In this session exhibiting artist Onyeka Igwe will take participants through the methodologies used to create the choral sound piece in a so-called archivebringing forth the intentions, ephemeral and textual influences in the work. 

Participants will collectively read and think through M. NourbeSe Philip’s Zong and Nnamdi Azikiwe’s  Respect for Human Dignity which played integral roles in the development of the sound piece in the exhibition. 

Participants are invited to bring texts of any form to share with the group. These will be used to discuss and workshop the methodologies explored in the session.
