HOW DID WE GET TO: WE ARE HERE?

19th March – 30th April 2022 Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast | 5th March – 16th April 2022 Highlanes Gallery, Drogheda

A COLLABORATIVE EXHIBITION OF ARTISTS’ MOVING IMAGE FROM THE BRITISH COUNCIL AND LUX

FILMS BY JOHN AKOMFRAH | REHANA ZAMAN | AYO AKINGBADE | SUSAN HILLER | DUNCAN CAMPBELL

Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast and Highlanes Gallery, Drogheda announce a collaborative exhibition partnership presenting WE ARE HERE, Artists’ Moving Image from the British Council Collection and LUX.

Exploring themes of marginality and its representation, community, storytelling, world-building and critically reframing histories, these linked exhibitions present films from SONGS OF A FORGOTTEN PAST, one of five artists’ film programmes curated by Tendai John Mutambu for the British Council, the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities, and LUX, an international arts agency that supports and promotes artists’ moving image practices.

The two exhibitions and programme of events at Golden Thread Gallery and Highlanes Gallery are separate but in conversation with each other; different interpretations from different places, with visits from each side of the border to the other gallery offering a chance to see the films from each other’s ‘here’.

The exhibitions are curated by Peter Richards at the Golden Thread Gallery and Aoife Ruane at Highlanes Gallery.
