Here are a few recommendations for upcoming events this month:
Re-framing the Moment: Legacies of the 1982 Blk Art Group Conference, Saturday 27th October at the Lecture Theatre, University
‘On Thursday 28th October 1982 a group of radical black art students hosted The First National Convention of Black Art at Wolverhampton Polytechnic. Their purpose was to discuss ‘the form, function and future of black art’. Thirty years later almost to the day, on Saturday 27th October 2012 a group of artists, curators, art historians and academics will gather, once again in Wolverhampton, to share scholarship and research the ‘black art movement’ of the 1980s, its core debates, precursors and legacies.’
Turning Point West Midlands Annual Visual Arts Forum, 19th October 1pm – 4:30pm, free entry.
‘….we’ll be taking you on a trip to Africa (in spirit, not literally) with a selection of African short films screening at The Barber Institute. We’ve got Oscar nominees and all sorts!’
