Material Archive Launch: Mum. Edit. More Fri 6 Oct 2023, 6.30pm – 10pm 

The exhibition launch for Shannelle ‘Tali’ Fergus’ Material Archive: Mum. Edit. More, as part of Artist Archive.

Conceived during Talawa Firsts 2017 and since performed at Rich Mix, The Place and Wellcome, ‘Mum. Edit. More’ is a highly personal and poignant audio-visual journey exploring the beauty of the human voice, pondering the effects of gentrification and reflecting on the nature of change. This Material Archive will take the form of journal extracts, voice notes and video recordings.

This launch event will feature a panel discussion, DJ, and bar – and time to explore the archive installed throughout the building. Join artist Shannelle ‘Tali’ Fergus and Nabil Al-Kinani, author of ‘Privatise the Mandem‘, in conversation at 7.30pm, hosted by street dance organisation The Capsule (check out their YouTube here). Sounds from DJ Glade Marie will take us through the evening until 10pm. At the bar we’ll be serving two bespoke cocktails created by mixologist La’Mel Clarke, representing Brixton present and past.
