ECHOES OF ACCRA
London is facing increasing pressure from a changing and globalising world, our communities struggling to accommodate the flux associated with population growth, migration and economic uncertainty. Yet as a society we continue to view the Western city as the model of development – at the forefront of modernisation and progress. In March 2016 we travelled to Accra in Ghana, looking to this rapidly growing African city for an ex-centric study of contemporary responses to 21st century pressures. The exhibition presents a collection of personal stories from across Ghana’s capital, which heard together; tell broader narratives about the city, its diverse and distinct communities and idiosyncratic inhabitants. Despite its challenges, we found communities within Accra that remain resilient and expectant. Characteristics that manifest themselves in a highly social urban landscape able to integrate strangers, accommodate change and above all adapt. Using interviews, sound, imagery, drawings and ephemera we present a series of part real, part imagined walks through the city.

The Experience of Colour
The Experience of Colour at The Estorick Collection is the first exhibition in the UK to focus on the work of a little-known moment in Italian art in the 1970s, when a group of six painters in Northern Italy, reacting against what they considered to be the superficiality of contemporary culture, issued a ‘Manifesto of Objective Abstraction’.
