"FOAM 05 July – 02 August 2014 Foam is an on-going project by artist @matjenner  Conceived as both a platform for experimental commissioning and an expansive artwork, Foam explores the condition of the contemporary art object and its relationship to spectatorship, dissemination, presence and display. Foam is a growing archive of dub plates, one-off 12” records commissioned from over 100 artists. The archive is presented within strict parameters, emphasising the record’s status as an art object. The records are unique, they can only be listened to in situ within ANDOR’s physical location. They are not replicated, broadcast or digitally disseminated. At ANDOR the archive is installed alongside constituent wall based elements. The audience is encouraged to interact with the archive by selecting and playing individual artworks through a record player and speaker system." 📸 @tomcarterldn  #ANDOR  #MatJenner  #LarryAchiampong  #SalvatoreArancio  #Asterism  #NicoleBachmann  #StuartBannister  #AnnaBarham  #RuthBarker  #SamBelinfante  #RichardBevan  #HannahBlack  #JackBrindley  #BronwenBuckeridge  #ConnieButler  #OlivierCastel  #RachelCattle  & #SteveRichards  #SkyeChamberlain  & #MaxMcFerren  #RobChavasse  #KevinClarke  #LucyClout  #PatrickCoyle  #MarieDElbee  #JesseDarling  #MarkDean  #StevenDickie  #BenedictDrew

Taken from Larry Achiampong's 'PAN AFRICAN FLAGS FOR THE RELIC TRAVELLERS’ ALLIANCE, MOTION' (2019). This digital artwork will be accompanied by Achiampong's billboard on the Cypher poster site in Bounds Green next month, both highlighting African diasporic identity. The colours green, black and red reflect its land, its people and the struggles the continent has endured, respectively, and the field of yellow gold represents a new day and prosperity. Larry has configured these Pan African colours into symbols and forms that are suggestive of various elements, in this instance, motion and the speed of darkness.

Day trip to see @larryachiampong ’s amazing exhibition Divi(ded) Nation at @weareprimary.  Rich in narrative, very poignant in parts, always brilliant and surprises around every corner. Touches on issues which are the responsibility of all of us to address: post-colonialism, migration, identity politics...list goes on #larryachiampong  #primarynottingham  #relictraveller 

@somersethouse  Get up, stand up now, curated by #zakové  is so uplifting celebrating 50 years of Black creativity in Britain and beyond. I loved the works by #horaceové  #rheastorr  #larryachiampong  #soniaboyce  #antheahamilton  and many more with over 100 artists contributing.

Get Up, Stand Up Now: the show that questions the lack of diversity in art galleries. From Zadie Smith to Denzil Forrester, this exhibition reflects and celebrates the work of black artists in Britain. With more than 100 different artists across photography, painting, music and film – is more like an immersive portrait of black British life over the last 50 years, and the influence of this creativity across UK culture. . . . . . . . . #ArmetFrancis  #blackaudiofilmcollective  #Charliephillips  #Dennisbovell  #ebonygpatterson  #gaika  #glennligon  #rashidjohnson  #HankWillisThomas  #peterdoig  #HassanHajjaj  #horaceove  #jennnkiru  #Larryachiampong  #MargaretBusby  #ronanmckenzie  #vanleyburke  Burke #yinkashonibare  #soundtrack  #Jillionaire  #majorlazer  #50years  #blackculture  #somersethouse  #contemporaryart  #africanart  #ukculture  #nickcave  #getupstandupnow  #zakove

Larry Achiampong cover profile for this month's Art Monthly, including his solo show at Primary, Nottingham. After reading about his solo practice you can see the first UK solo exhibition of his joint practice with David Blandy, across two galleries: Copperfield > opens Wed 5th June, 6 - 9pm Seventeen > opens Wed 26th June, 6 – 9pm #larryAchiampong  @art_monthly_uk  @emery.tom  @larryachiampong  @weareprimary  @david_blandy_  @seventeengallery 

We’re currently taking a little break from programming at Trade. We recommend Larry Achiampong’s @larryachiampong  exhibition at @weareprimary  (we’re in the same building) Until 22 June. - - - This solo exhibition layers video, installation, performance, sculpture, and text-works – providing the most comprehensive presentation of the artist’s work in the UK to date. Divid̶e̶d̶nation alludes to the practice of divination (that is, to look into the future), using art works to make sense of the UK’s present socio-political climate. The title blends words, acronyms and text-speak to reference the tremulous times we find ourselves in: on a knife-edge, and surrounded by uncertainty that threatens our collective future. Exhibited across Primary’s galleries different strands of Achiampong’s work will interact, offering insights and challenging these concerns. #LarryAchiampong  @larryachiampong  #Divid̶e̶d̶nation  #RelicTraveller  #Afrofuturism  #PanAfrican

1 week to go ⏱ until #withforabout  when practitioners, producers and artists including @larryachiampong  join us at Ravenhead Social Club in Windle St Helens to consider the role of socially engaged art in civic society. Larry will be drawing on his own British Ghanian background and his award winning multi disciplinary work that considers race, class and belief. You might remember his film installation Sunday's Best (shown in St Helens as part of #takeoverfestival  last year) and he's working with us on a new project with refugee and asylum seeking women in Liverpool. But more on that later! Handful of conf tickets still available. Snap them up before it's too late! . . . #artanddemocracy  #socialengagedpractice  #collaborativearts  #art  #film  #larryachiampong 

Tomorrow evening at @weareprimary , we're hosting a performance by Larry Achiampong as part of his current solo exhibition, Divid̶e̶d̶nation. No need to book, just join us from 7pm. … #LarryAchiampong  @larryachiampong  #Divid̶e̶d̶nation  #performance  #PanAfrican  #RelicTraveller 

While you're visiting @moadsf  , don't miss out on the exhibition "Still Here", a show dedicated to films and video works by artists of the African Diaspora. The works in this exhibition use moving images as a conduit to highlight the rituals and traditions that persevere and evolve in oppressive historical contexts. The exhibition takes an international perspective that underscores the resilience of the peoples of the African Diaspora, leveraging the different ways that moving images can serve as a device to demonstrate how these communities have developed tactics, language, and strategies to assert their agency and sovereignty. . . . The exhibition, curated by Larry Ossei-Mensah, Dexter Wimberly and Kiara Ventura, is presented in 3 parts, and is currently showing works by Adama Delphine Fawundu, Cinthia Marcelle and MELO-X. Our very own artist Carlos Javier Ortiz will show his work "A Thousand Nights" in the second section from June 12 to July14.

For the publication launch we are re-siting the pavilion in the garage of Villa Lontana. ARCHEOLOGI situates works by Larry Achiampong, Elisabetta Benassi, Alessandro Cicoria, Barry Flanagan, Clementine Keith-Roach, Louise Lawler, Maria Nordman, Sudarshan Shetty, Daniel R. Small, Franco Troiani in the garden of Villa Lontana. The book includes a section where each artist responded to the documentation of the exhibition as a work in itself. Carlo Ludovico Ragghianti’s ‘Urne Etrusche a Volterra’ was made in 1958. He was an Italian art critic, historian and theorist. He used cinematography as an instrument for critical research and information, to reconstruct the visual and formal paths of artist’s works. He devised the term critofilm. In 1952 he founded and directed the art magazine seleArte, which was remarkable for its breath of themes and contents. Ragghianti was an ardent anti-fascist and played an important role in recreating the cores of the liberal, democratic and socialist opposition. #larryachiampong  @larryachiampong  #elisabettabenassi  @magazzinogallery  #alessandrocicoria  @alessandrocicoria  #barryflanagan  @barryflanaganestate  #clementinekeithroach  @clementinekeithroach  #louiselawler  #marianordman  #sudarshanshetty  @sudarshanstudio  #danielrsmall  @danielrsmall  #francotroiani  #ARCHEOLOGI  #fondazionesantarelli  #villalontana  Photo: Simon d’Exéa @simondexea 

4 days until @aavforum ! Media Minerals⁣ ⁣ Incorporating music, spoken word, and video projection, Larry Achiampong & David Blandy’s performance Media Minerals reflects on how politics of race affect relationships in an age of technology and globalization. The artists have a scripted encounter that relates their personal experiences and geopolitical observations. Their friendship — forged through virtual spaces like video games or WhatsApp — is tested as they consider how the lives of their respective children differ from each other, and what the future may hold for all of mankind. The Media Minerals performance takes the raw materials of the Finding Fanon series into the physical space.⁣ ⁣ With:⁣ ⁣ Larry Achiampong, artist⁣ David Blandy, artist⁣ ⁣ Presented in collaboration with New Art Exchange.⁣ Tuesday, May 7th at 4:45pm ⁣ ⁣ 📷Image: photo by Colin Davison ⁣ #aavf  #aavforum  #aavf2019  #larryachiampong  #davidblandy  #newartexchange  #mediaminerals  #globalization  #technology  #race  #inclusivedialoguematters  #africanart  #contemporaryart  #venicebiennale  #2019  #forum  #conversations  #dialogue  #inclusivity  #accessibility  ⁣⁣

Achiampong’s project titled ‘Relic Traveller’ builds on themes of lost testimony, fallen empire and displacement by deconstructing the architectures of colonialism. The project is formed of a ‘First Phase’ involving an original score, two short films and installations, an audio-visual performance and a flag project which displayed atop @somersethouse  in London. . . East London-based, Ghanaian multi-disciplinary artist @larryachiampong  draws on colonial history, his own Ghanian heritage, and the experience of growing up in Britain to create works that explore ideas around class, race and cultural identity. . . The film follows a child protagonist through a landscape that uncovers clues to a forgotten Empire. Narrative of the boy, migration and technology are interwoven to create a journey that is “simultaneously claustrophobic, traumatic, poetic and sublime.” . . Special thanks to @afrotechfest  for introducing us to Achiampong’s stunning body of work . . #larryachiampong  #kanaizagallery 

I saw this at the end of March and it was fantastic I mean anything that uses Resident Evil to look as race is something I need to see . . . #galleryart  #geneticautomata  #artscatalyst  #larryachiampong  #davidblandy  #residentevil  #gamingislife  #reallyloveditthough 

Larry Achiampong’s ‘Relic 0’ (2017) explores cultural history through landscape, the colonisation of African territories, of countries and their sovereignty. Achiampong’s work addresses migration and dispossession in colonial territories, the film confronts our sense of history and our relations to the specifics of place. It takes us on a geographical, historical and cultural journey that is each of the following: political, social and personal @larryachiampong  #larryachiampong  @copperfield_london  #copperfieldgallery  #ARCHEOLOGI  #fondazionesantarelli  #villalontana  Photo: Simon d’Exéa @simondexea

Next up at Primary — Larry Achiampong Divid̶e̶d̶nation PREVIEW: Thursday 25 April, 6-8pm PERFORMANCE: Wednesday 15 May, 7pm EXHIBITION: 26 April-22 June This solo exhibition layers video, installation, performance, sculpture, and text-works – providing the most comprehensive presentation of the artist’s work in the UK to date. Divid̶e̶d̶nation alludes to the practice of divination (that is, to look into the future), using art works to make sense of the UK’s present socio-political climate. The title blends words, acronyms and text-speak to reference the tremulous times we find ourselves in: on a knife-edge, and surrounded by uncertainty that threatens our collective future. Exhibited across Primary’s galleries different strands of Achiampong’s work will interact, offering insights and challenging these concerns. #LarryAchiampong  @larryachiampong  #Divid̶e̶d̶nation  #RelicTraveller  #Afrofuturism  #PanAfrican  @weareprimary
