Larry Achiampong & David Blandy: Finding Fanon
Fort Worth Contemporary Arts

August 25 - October 7 2017

Finding Fanon is a film series inspired by the lost plays of Frantz Fanon (1925-1961), a politically radical humanist whose practice dealt with the psychopathology of colonization and the social and cultural consequences of decolonization. The artists negotiate Fanon’s ideas, and examine how society, race and racism affect our relationships with each other in an age of new technology, pop culture and globalization. There will be a live performance by the artists on September 21. Gallery hours are 12:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.

A Study of Line: Self portraiture through Graphic Novels with David Blandy

July 12, 2017

7—8.30pm

William Morris Gallery, Lloyd Park, Forest Road, Walthamstow E17 4PP

In this workshop led by artist David Blandy you will learn how to construct, draw and plan a comic strip and be introduced to the skills necessary to combine text and image in order to tell your stories.

Participants will examine master practitioners such as Harvey Pekar, Art Spiegelman, Osamu Tezuka, Alison Bechdel and Chris Ware before constructing their own stories based on important moments in their lives.

Facebook event page

David Blandy works with the image in the digital world, from the YouTube tutorial and music videos, to television series, anime and the narrative sections of computer games; highlighting our relationship with popular culture and investigating what makes us who we are. Within each work he deconstructs the form, placing himself as the alienated subject in a prefabricated cultural archetype. Through this process Blandy questions our relationship with the narratives that surround and shape us, to find what forms the contemporary collective unconscious.

7 July - 2 September

Preview: Thursday 6 July, 6–8pm

Larry Achiampong and David Blandy will be in conversation with Ben Borthwick, PAC Artistic Director at 7pm

The exhibition premiere of Larry Achiampong and David Blandy’s film trilogy Finding Fanon (2015—17) is a moving and multi-layered exploration of race, identity and globalisation. Inspired by the radical thinker Frantz Fanon (1925—1961), the trilogy considers Fanon’s ideas about the mental distress caused by colonialism and the social and cultural consequences of decolonisation, and the ways race, racism and societal issues affect our relationships. The films move between past, present and future, blending personal histories and pop culture with science fiction and post-colonial theory. Footage of the artists shot in empty coastal and rural locations is collaged with their avatars wandering the deserted scenarios of Grand Theft Auto.

Medieval-City One is a group exhibition and series of events that seeks to think about the future in a Medieval state of mind. Taking its title from Judge Dredd’s Mega-City One, the project invites artists to imagine a proposed city state formed from misunderstood and appropriated remnants of the past. Through newly commissioned video and installation works, the contributing artists deal with the constructs of bureaucracy, colonialism, national identity, immigration, ethnicity, posthumanism, the gendered body, and tourism.

This exhibition is part of a programme of exhibitions and events at Two Queens across 2016-18 kindly supported by public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Leicester City Council and De Montfort University.

Posthuman Complicities: "I hear the waters’ song", mumok, Vienna: Curated by Andrea Popelka & Lisa Stuckey

Andrea Popelka and Lisa Stuckey have curated a film program to be screened on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, 19:00 at mumok cinema, Vienna.

The film program is to complement the exhibition "Posthuman Complicities" at The Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna.

Program

Hannah Black, My Bodies, 2015, 4 min
Larry Achiampong & David Blandy, Finding Fanon Part Two, 2015, 10 min
Paul Maheke, What Flows Through and Across, 2017, 14 min
Akosua Adoma Owusu, Drexciya, 2010, 11 min
The Otolith Group, Hydra Decapita, 2010, 31 min

Presented by Andrea Popelka and Lisa Stuckey

“I hear the waters’song” takes place in connection with the exhibition Posthuman Complicities currently on show at xhibit at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna: this exhibition addresses concepts of fluidity, the Atlantic, and the deep seas, seeing the ocean as a location of violence and resistance. The focus of the accompanying program at mumok cinema is on music as a store of colonial history, with a central role taken by the Detroit techno duo Drexciya. In a series of publications and an accompanying mythology, Drexciya reformulated a speculative version of the 1781 massacre on the slave ship Zong, transferring the story to the present day. A large number of filmmakers and artists have drawn on the work of Drexciya. Spirits from the past are conjured up, allowing their voices to be heard in the rhythms of language and song, and in essayistic and simulated moving images. Audre Lorde says: “I hear the waters’ song, feel the tides within the fluids of my body, hear the sea echoing my mother’s voices of survival […] I hear them resounding inside me from swish to boom – from the dark to the moon of fullness.”

UNTITLED: art on the conditions of our time is a major new touring exhibition produced by New Art Exchange, curated in collaboration with NAE by Paul Goodwin and Hansi Momodu-Gordon. The show adopts a progressive stance on exhibition making to allow new ways of thinking about art by African diaspora artists to emerge. In a bold move, fixed curatorial themes have been stripped out to create a stimulating space where artworks can be experienced more openly, and where the interplay between the artists' practices can be observed. As the exhibition curators state, "This is not a show 'about' a coherent movement – instead it presents works by British African diaspora artists outside of the usual framing".
