We are pleased to announce that on Sunday 1st of July, the author Caryl Phillips will do a reading and take part in a lunchtime discussion with anthropologist Steven Feld and the artist Virginia Ryan, about their exhibition 'Castaways' which is being staged at the Whitworth art gallery.
Castaways is a mixed media exhibition by visual artist Virginia Ryan in collaboration with acoustic anthropologist Steven Feld. This exhibition has transformed a gallery into an environment concerned with the washed-in and washed-out history and memory of displacements, gold and slavery along the one-time African Gold Coast, resonating with the current anniversaries of Ghanaian independence and the abolition of slavery. The exhibition has also been planned and scheduled so as to address the creative and intellectual possibilities of 'Beyond Text?'. Further details can be found at the Whitworth's exhibition page and at Voxlox.
