TRACES 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.

Click to enlargeTHE EAST LONDON GROUP : THE WORKING ARTIST
Sep 29 - Dec 17, 2017
Private view Thu Sep 28 6pm - 9pm
The East London Group returns to the Nunnery Gallery with a new collection of paintings, selected and curated by writer broadcaster Michael Rosen and radio producer film-maker Emma-Louise Williams.
Working during the inter-war period, the East London Group of artists were made up of ordinary working men and women, attending art classes and exhibiting their paintings alongside their day jobs. With a focus on Albert Turpin, a leading figure in the anti-fascist movement, the works are a visual narrative of East End history and will be accompanied by a series of new public artworks, highlighting those working in east London today.
