ART & COMPROMISE 3: MARK SEALY TALK AT BEACONSFIELD GALLERY

About

The third lecture in the Art & Compromise series is salient in the light of the paradigm shift we are witnessing within global politics. In The Organ that Weeps, Mark Sealy will discuss, through his work at Autograph ABP, issues relating to race, representation and human rights. Mark Sealy is the Director of Autograph ABP — the Association of Black Photographers. The curator of several international photography exhibitions, he has commissioned artists globally and initiated the production of over forty publications, including Different, his critically acclaimed book project with Professor Stuart Hall. Sealy has a special interest in the relationship of photography to social change and identity politics. The talk will offer a great opportunity to view material from the vast Autograph archive. Art & Compromise III coincides with the exhibition of Courage to Refuse (20 January-15 March 2009), a Beaconsfield commission on DVD by Katie Barlow/John Buckley/David Crawforth/Shane Cullen. The text, sound and moving image in this work are rendered to reflect the radical contrasts and tensions existing in today's Israeli-Palestinian territories. The event is free but places are limited so booking is essential. Please contact us at info@beaconsfield.ltd.uk or on 020 7582 6465.
