We have two artistic residencies as part of the Lives of Objects programme: Pamela Tulizo and Theo Eshetu.
Lives of Objects: Virtual Gatherings
This new series of events, Lives of Objects: Virtual Gatherings, aims to form a platform for exchange and discussion about the decades-long and ongoing efforts for the recovery of looted cultural heritage and ancestral belongings to their countries and communities of origin. Curated by Sofia Lovegrove, these Virtual Gatherings seek to dissect the multiple meanings of restitution and stimulate active discussion amongst cultural workers, researchers, artists and a community of participants. Moderated by Sherry Davis, the gatherings will consider and interrogate the complex issues at the crux of restitution work, exploring a range of African and Diasporic initiatives and research that offer alternative and critical ways of thinking and doing such work.
The series, taking place in November and December 2023, comprises four themed online events. Each event focuses on a “living object”, which will serve as a springboard for the vital exchange of ideas. Take part in the discussions by registering for free below.
