Join us for an evening of performative reading and a conversation between Nobel Peace Prize photographer and artist Sim Chi Yin and curator Annie Jael Kwan from Something Human and Asia-Art-Activism.
performingborders | LIVE is a programme focusing on the exploration of personal, cultural and physical borders with UK-based artists and curators.
For Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, curators Alessandra Cianetti and Xavier de Sousa invited two migrant arts practitioners to discuss how exile, loss, trauma, family memories, colonialism have shaped Sim Chi Yin’s work and her research at the intersection between the archive, photography, and performance.
The Q&A will be chaired by academic, thinker and activist Dr. Anna Marazuela Kim.
