Join us for the launch of An Alterable Terrain, published on the occasion of Rhea Dillon’s solo exhibition at Tate Britain | Art Now.
Accompanying this major exhibition, this new book showcases Dillon’s poetically insightful work. Edited by Dillon, An Alterable Terrain features her poetry, alongside newly commissioned texts, posthumously published poems from the poetry archives in Jamaica and installation views of the exhibition alongside individual works.
Published by Tate Publishing and designed by OKRM, An Alterable Terrain features contributions from Pat Noxolo, Barbara Ferland, Zoé Samudzi, Vanessa Onwuemezi, Françoise Vergès, Katherine McKittrick and Martine Syms. This powerful new volume illuminates the links between historical sites of dispossession and contemporaneous sites of exploitation and overwork, and underlines how structures of power – including colonialism, racial capitalism, and patriarchy – have an enduring presence in the production of Caribbean and British identities.
Copies of the book will be on sale at the launch, priced at £28, with a special edition available to pre-order.
