Join us to close our gallery exhibition more of an avalanche with an afternoon of talks and conversations expanding on the themes it raises.

About

This event will offer a final opportunity to view the exhibition, which closes on 15 April, and an occasion to expand on some of themes it raises: from sickness and crip theory, to the need for intergenerational conversations, and the dissolution of spaces for both critical conversation and club culture.

12pm – Arrivals including time to visit the exhibition and thecafé@wysing which is open 10am to 4pm.

12.50pm – Welcome.

1pm – Nick Aikens, Curator at Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven and co-curator of recent exhibitions 'The Place Is Here' and 'Rasheed Araeen: A Retrospective' will draw on his research to contextualise more of an avalanche and to revisit the key themes of the exhibition. Followed by a Q&A with Wysing curator John Bloomfield.

1.30pm – Taking their contribution to 'more of an avalanche' as a starting point, artist Raju Rage will discuss their research and experiences of activism that informed the work.

1.50pm – Break with time to visit the café.

2.20pm –  Artist Leah Clements will discuss ideas and issues around sickness and ‘crip’ theory and talk about a new network of art practitioners who will be in residence later this year at Wysing.

2.40 pm – Current artist-in-residence Phoebe Collings-James will talk about the new work she is developing with Last Yearz Interesting Negro/Jamila Johnson-Small in relation to disobedience and sound as a weapon.

3pm – Music producer Elijah will present 'Last Dance', a timely and urgent investigation into the rapid changes affecting UK club culture, and the impact of those changes on music and youth culture.

3.20pm – Open conversation followed by a summing up from Nick Aikens.

4pm – Ends
