Alternate Languages: Confronting Boundaries. Royal Academy of Arts: Seeking Refuge: Views of Displacement

Robert Mull (Curator/Producer)

Research output: Non-textual outputExhibition

Abstract

Alternate Languages: Confronting Boundaries invites a critique of our relationship with one another and with our spaces. In a day of free immersive spatial activations, artworks, performances, workshops and discussions in the Royal Academy, we explore isolation and connection, exclusion and generosity, and ask what unites us and divides us.

As disenchantment permeates many aspects of society and polarisation increases, we must transcend difference, overcome prejudices, find ways to understand and connect with one another.

Within this context Robert Mull co-curated and chaired:

Seeking Refuge: Views of Displacement

This discussion asks how we seek refuge with and from one another; how displacement can allow us to better understand other communities; what we can learn from stories about generations of lives lived on the road; and what the implications of movement and migration are for public space, art, design and architecture. Join Clod Ensemble’s artistic director Suzy Willson, Thomas McCarthy (Irish Traveller Singer and Activist), David Cotterrell (Installation artist), and chair Robert Mull (University of Brighton).
