Emerging filmmaker, artist and performer Wu Tsang’s new solo show Under Cinema investigates how artistic practice and its products are positioned to challenge dominant narratives.
The world premiere of a new commission film, Under Cinema, features the acclaimed American singer-songwriter Kelela, and was conceived as a site-specific installation for Gallery 2, located under FACT’s cinema screens. The exhibition investigates issues of voice and representation through innovative filmmaking methodologies, questioning the reliability of the fixed image, as well as the viewer’s gaze.

Tsang’s new commission is a co-production between FACT and Warp Records, and is developed with the support of the Goethe-Institut, London.
