Imagine Art After - Tate Britain (preview)
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
AN EXHIBITION of newly commissioned work, part of the Imagine Art After project, is on display at Tate Britain until January 6, 2008.
By exploring insecurities triggered by the tension between migration and a sense of local cultural, political and social situations, this contempoary art project brings together artists who left their home countries and now live in London with artists who stayed.
The project began on Guardian Unlimited with online dialogues between pairs of artists from Afghanistan, Albania, Ethiopia, Iran, Iraq, Nigeria and Serbia. The work on display was produced after the dialogues, either individually or jointly, in most cases showing the profound impact the process had on the participating artists.
The six artists whose work is being displayed are Muyiwa Osifuye, Addisalem Bizuwork, Senayt Samuel, Estabrak, Denis Hyka and Violana Murataj.
Tate Britain, Lightbox, Room 18 and West Ambulatory.
Times: Daily 10am to 5.50pm.
