NOW AVAILABLE ON OUR CHANNEL:
TALK – RESISTANCE / CONFRONTATION: OLGA SMITH ON MOHAMED BOUROUISSA

Through the double focus on the themes of resistance and confrontation, this talk delineates the volatile dynamics underpinning Mohamed Bourouissa’s art. It draws on a wide range of Bourouissa’s projects spanning photography, moving image and installation to show how these works intersect with symbolic, spatial and political constructions of inequality, social exclusion and racialised identities.

In tracing these connections, Olga Smith engages with Jacques Rancière’s concept of ‘the sharing of the sensible’ to explore the transformative potential of art.

RECOMMENDED: @extraextramagazine takes over NTS (@nts_radio) on Friday 9 July at 11.30am with the Extra Extra Radio Show.

For episode 7, three members of the public tell us about their most memorable romantic encounters in The City. Darrenen, a writer, 7 foot 11, delivers a tell-all account of how he found his alien spouse via a pheromone-based dating app. Renowned leading self-mythologised radical, Cleo hardly needs an introduction. Her politics reverberate through the lakes of ej*****te congealing in the foundations of The City. Have you ever composed an aerobic opera to impress a mysterious woman you once glimpsed while in line at the cinema? Vanessa was born with a debilitating glint of mischief in her eyes. Her tale is one of triumph over perversity.

The show is written and performed by Dan Fox (@d_a_n_f_o_x) and Michael Portnoy (@michaelportnoy), in close collaboration with Loes Verstappen (@loes.verstappen) who selected the music, and Monte Masi (@montemasi). Voice acting by Dan Fox, Michael Portnoy, Johnny Vivash, Monique Moses and Loveday Smith (@lallymagoo). Drawings by Fiona Lutjenhuis (@fionalutjenhuis).

Looking back at ´I and I and We are We’, a school workshop exploring questions of identity and wellbeing with pupils at St James Hatcham Primary School that took place 7-11 June.

Using poetry as a stimulus, and textiles as a language, students created punch needle rug patches to form a collaborative rug tapestry – exploring ideas of cohesion and connectivity through art, both individually and as a collective group.

‘I and I and We are We’ was devised and led by artist Tyreis Holder, with @poeticunity.

We work with schools, both in the gallery, and remotely, to support children and young people to engage with and learn about art and its relevance to everyday life, and to support teachers to embed contemporary art into the curriculum. For more information please email [email protected] or visit our website (link in bio).

HORSE DAY, MOHAMED BOUROUISSA⁠
Thursday 1st July⁠

Become a member today to get online access to Horse Day (2015), a triumphant film currently showing as part of our Mohamed Bourouissa exhibition.⁠

https://goldsmithscca.art/membership/

After being profoundly struck by Martha Camarillo’s photographs of urban horsemen at the Fletcher Street Urban Riding Club in the Strawberry Mansion area of North Philadelphia, Bourouissa moved to the neighbourhood for a period of eight months to find out more about the community. The images of these black cowboys were powerful to him in their deconstruction of the white cowboy image upon which so much of American mythology rests; many of the working cowboys in the West were in fact black, Latino, and Native American. ⁠

The film will be available for 24 HOURS ONLY on Thursday 1 July.⁠

A link and password will be sent out that morning to our members list.⁠

🎥 The films and conversations for our recent event Regroundings will be available to view for one more week!

👀 Don't miss the opportunity to watch works by Asuf Ishaq, Onyeka Igwe, Peter Spanjer, and Gal Leshem!

Regroundings was conceived as a week-long film programme in response to Mohamed Bourouissa’s exhibition HARa!!!!!!hAaaRAAAAA!!!!!hHAaA!!!. Departing from Bourouissa’s use of critical documentary, the artists deploy the medium of film to explore colonial legacies, ongoing racial and socio-cultural inequality, and diasporic identities. In each work, the lens functions as a tool to navigate the body and its relation to place, developing narrative approaches to questioning collective histories within each artists’ locale.

Visit the https://goldsmithscca.art/regroundings to read the week’s conversations, and access the works!

Co-curated by Goldsmiths MFA Curating students Fiona Graf, Edward Longville, Ankita Mukherji, and Yurika Imaseki.

Film Screening: Regroundings 🌱
Akirot (uprootings) (2020), Gal Leshem

Gal Leshem (b. Israel) is a London based artist, whose practice is concerned with notions of history, collective memory, and the construction of local identities. In her film Akirot (uprootings) (2020), she explores the relationship between land, plants and nomadism together with her mother, a national nature trail guide. Through the excavation of land and illustrations from books of local flora, the piece investigates different identifications with her homeland Israel.

Regroundings is a week-long film programme in response to Mohamed Bourouissa’s exhibition HARa!!!!!!hAaaRAAAAA!!!!!hHAaA!!! At the CCA Goldsmiths, featuring films by artists Gal Leshem, Asuf Ishaq, Onyeka Igwe and Peter Spanjer.

Make Me Safe (2020), Peter Spanjer

Peter Spanjer (b. Germany) is a Nigerian artist who graduated with an MA in Contemporary Art Practice: Moving Image at the Royal College of Art, UK, and is currently living and working in London. His work, Make Me Safe (2020) unpicks cliched notions of Blackness and questions internalised belief systems. Engendering moments of intimacy and softness, he harnesses elements of sensuality and sexuality to resist stereotyped perceptions of the Black male body.

the names have changed, including my own and truths have been altered (2019), Onyeka Igwe

Onyeka Igwe (b. 1986, UK) is an artist and researcher working between cinema and installation, whose work explores how sensoriality, spatiality, and non-canonical ways of knowing can inform how we live together. "the names have been changed, including my own and truths have been altered" (2019) tells the story of Onyeka Igwe’s grandfather in four different ways, similarly disrupting ideas of knowledge production and documentation. The truth is hard to pinpoint, and subject to change. Trudging through personal, colonial, and televisual collections in Nigeria, the tales Igwe encounters are complicated, but she finds her own rhythm in recounting them.

Hi guys, hoping to get some creative wisdom I'm making a documentary that explores imagination and memory (for my Goldsmiths MA Filmmaking 2018-19 final project) and would love to use animation and/or moving art to portray some of the ideas and layer over interviews. If anyone is interested in adding a doc to their portfolio and would like to collaborate let me know. Would be great to chat over coffee/ a drink!!
