Click to enlargeTRACES OF THE FUTURE: ARCHAEOLOGY OF MODERN SCIENCE IN AFRICA
Jan 27 - Mar 26, 2017
The Amani – meaning peace in Kiswahili – Hill Research Station lies deep in a Tanzanian rainforest, suspended as a capsule of dreams high on a mountain range. We invite audiences to explore this intriguing and beautiful place, through Russian photographer Evgenia Arbugaeva’s 12 celebrated photographs – as featured in December 2016’s National Geographic – together with 11 new photo works and three new films from renowned multi-media artist Mariele Neudecker, all made on a residency in Amani. A selection of objects will surround the artwork, from original specimens – bottled snakes, butterflies and flies – to maps and experimental equipment, inviting you to explore and meditate on these objects that draw lines into our own past, our understanding of the present world, and its future.

RAW MATERIALS: TEXTILES
Apr 18 - Jun 24, 2018
The Raw Materials project traces the industrial history of east London along the River Lea, supported by The National Lottery with funds awarded through the Heritage Lottery Fund. This year the project has followed textiles, exploring a history of silk-weaving, calico printing, jute spinning and the invention of dye colours. Visit to discover and remember these newly unearthed histories of east London.
 
The exhibition includes loans of historic fabric produced in the area – including a Georgian calico from Old Ford courtesy of the V&A and a River Lea-inspired design by William Morris – alongside newly commissioned contemporary work from resident artists Freya Gabie and Sarah Desmarais. The show is accompanied by a lively event programme, including walking and boat tours, artist-led workshops and panel discussions.
