Alberta Whittle by Matthew A Williams
Jan 27, 2023 at 7:00 pm8:00 pm£15.00

Join artist Alberta Whittle In Conversation with curator Will Cooper for a discussion about the artist’s latest exhibition, Dipping below a waxing moon, the dance claims us for release. Drawing on their long-term working relationship, the conversation will explore Whittle’s practice of promoting self-compassion and collective care as key methodologies in fighting anti-Blackness, and how these ideas manifested in this beautifully thought-provoking new show. The conversation will take audiences on a journey to better understand the artist’s practice and her engagement with the Holburne. A relationship which started with an invitation to write an epitaph for the enslaved who lost their lives on the Ball’s Plantation and has culminated in Whittle’s first commission in a UK museum. This event is part of our first Up Late of 2023
Your ticket includes your entry into the exhibition between 5pm to 8.30pm
The Collection galleries and Garden cafe will also be open until 9pm (last entry 8.30pm)
