Oct 21, 2017 5:00pm talk/event
Keith Piper in conversation with Professor Paul Goodwin as part of a performative symposium. This is situated within BGV's current exhibition Jet Black Futures I, featuring Piper's newly commissioned digital work, Mic Drop.
 
A founding member of the British BLK Art Group (active 1979-1984), Piper is a key British artist and academic figure who has pioneered multi-media installation on a digital platform in the UK from the mid 1980s. More recently, Piper’s research has contributed to the discourses of what has come to be described as ‘Afrofuturism’. Key Afrofuturist concepts of ‘space’, as in the evocation of the ‘astral’, and ‘geography’ as associated with concepts of mapping, distance and terrain, form starting points for the current body of work. The conversation, in progress between Beaconsfield and Piper since 2005, will continue in public through a performative symposium on 21 October that welcomes Professor Paul Goodwin (Chelsea UAL) and Middlesex University Art & Design Research Institute Science Fiction Cluster.
