We are happy to announce that Caecilia Tripp film Making History, in co-direction with Karen D. McKinnon is screened at the Cookhouse Gallery, London for MA Fine Art Students and WPC research team, on an invitation by Rahila Haque (event not open to public).
Making History, in conjunction with consent not to be a single being: Worlding Through the Caribbean takes the Caribbean - and Caribbean thought - as a starting point to reconsider global histories of art and contemporary public cultures. Drawing on the foundational work of Caribbean thinkers Édouard Glissant, Stuart Hall and Sylvia Wynter, the symposium explores their impact on our understanding of the material,epistemological and ontological repercussions of these histories.
Addressing the contested public paces of universities, museums, and cultural institutions, this symposium thinks with and through Glissant, Hall and Wynter to radically transform our ways of relating to the world around us. The event will include a keynote lecture by celebrated Black studies and Black feminism scholar, Katherine McKittrick, as well as five panels covering topics ranging from public culture, education, counter-histories, colonialism, world-making and the environment.
