John Akomfrah – A Storm Is Blowing

THE-NINE-MUSES-QUAYSIDE

Julien Crepieux’s Microfilm is the final screening in the onscreen programme linked to the Now Showing exhibition in our Eastcastle St. space. The next exhibition in the gallery is a group show featuring John Akomfrah, Phoebe Boswell and Rashaad Newsome. The exhibition includes Transfigured Night – a new two-screen work by John Akomfrah, which investigates the disappointments and legacies of the African countries post-second world war independence from colonial rule. To coincide with the UK premiere of Transfigured Night (the film was first shown at HKW, Berlin in October/ November last year), we’ve scheduled a season of John’s films:
