The exhibition launch for Valerie Ebuwa’s Material Archive, ValUE.
Join us as we celebrate the launch of ValUE. This Material Archive will be installed throughout the studios, so make sure you give yourself time to explore each area.
At 7.15pm, artist Valerie Ebuwa will give a talk, chaired by Ama Rouge with BSL interpretation by Jacqui Beckford. This is not a Q&A but rather a discussion around the creation of the project. Afterwards, a DJ will be set up in the space so that the celebration can truly get underway!
Written and audio accompaniment (via smartphone) will be available to viewers, who are invited to choreograph their own path through the exhibit.
Food and drinks will be available to purchase from a bar and a food vendor in our courtyard, as well as exclusive ValUE merchandise.
Friday 9 September, 6.30pm – 10pm
At the studios
Free to attend
Accompanied by an audio description and guide
