What’s on at Bow Arts in March

Art and Anthropology: from archive to future

Thursday 9th March (7 – 9pm)
Nunnery Gallery, 181 Bow Road, London E3 2SJ

Anthropology: from Archive to future will look at how artists and anthropologists engage in a conversation with a future archive as a way of redefining how we think and feel about a collection of things, objects and natural artefacts. In Traces of the Future, the artwork of Arbugaeva and Neudecker, made alongside the anthropological fieldwork led by Prof. Wenzel Paul Geissler at the Amani Hill Research Centre, also re-imagines possible futures from the archive. It could be said that conceptual artists utilise the archive as a form of entry point to produce an engagement with objects, things and ideas. Anthropologists, on the other hand, think with the archive as a way of contextualising their field and research.

A series of projections where each member of our group, based on the other side of Aberfeldy St at number 48, has been invited to present a slide in response to the locality: it’s past and future, and our position as a self-organised school based temporarily in a shop here, in the midst of mass evictions and impending redevelopment.


Poplar Partnership Celebration at Spotlight

Friday 24th March
During the course of the year, we have been working alongside professional artists, teachers and pupils creating artwork, addressing key school improvement priorities and building relationships across Tower Hamlets. Each school has undertaken a bespoke project to deliver a year-long programme of activity. The celebration event will feature an exhibition of artwork created by children over the year, alongside creative workshops for pupils to share their new-found skills.
