Join us for a screening of Black Poirot, followed by an in-conversation with the director, Rosa Johan Uddo

To celebrate the opening of The Time is Always Now: Artists Reframe the Black Figure, join artist and director, Rosa Johan Uddo.

A screening of Black Poirot, described by Johan Uddo as ‘a 20-minute ride on the Orientalised-Other Express’, the film will be followed by an in-conversation with the director.

Responding to themes explored in the exhibition, this evening session will celebrate the concept of ‘Blackness’ as a way to foster kinship and community.

Additional activities on the night will include a night-life photography workshop by Eddie Otchere; a performance by sound and visual artist, Damsel Elysium; and a DJ set in our main hall.
