With contributions from Paul Purgas, Nabihah Iqbal and Kindness (Adam Bainbridge), The Listening Party series unpacks creative process and considers the sonic and visual cultures that have shaped their identities as British South-Asian artists. To close the series, Imran hosts a night in the Deadhouse with a curated line-up and exclusive DJ sets from the participating artists and invited guests.
Imran Perretta addresses biopower, marginality and the (de)construction of cultural histories. His multi-disciplinary practice encompasses moving image, sound, performance and poetry.
