Accompanying our latest exhibition Under Cinema is a wide-ranging programme, Refuge, which investigates the notion of ‘refuge’ or ‘safe-space’, in relation to art (and by extension to cultural institutions). These events consider how art and artistic approaches can represent, or begin to give a platform to, a diversity of narratives usually underrepresented in mainstream media and discourse. The series, developed in collaboration with a variety of local partners, explores the positive effect of these possibilities but also their limitations and failures.
