From 8 April to 29 July 2021, the gallery will present Ways of Knowing, a thematic programme of art and ideas that explores alternative ways of thinking about the world. The live events series centres around the theme of Water/Fluidity, in reference to the subjects explored in the major exhibition Eileen Agar: Angel of Anarchy, and more conceptually to the fluid connections between art, theory, history and place.
At its core Ways of Knowing looks to peripheral knowledge systems – the indigenous, self-taught and the non-human – taking an expansive, non-linear approach to what we can know and how we can come to know it. The artist-focussed programme features lectures, film screenings and workshops with Astrida Neimanis, Zadie Xa (b. 1983, Canada), Umama Hamido (b. 1987, Lebanon), Joshua Bonnetta (b. 1979, Canada), Huw Wahl (b. 1985, UK), Cristina Iglesias (b. 1956, Spain) and more.
