The Place is Here, The 1980s: Black Artists in Britain is a publication that takes as its starting point the international exhibition and research project The Place is Here (2016-17) that traced the urgent and wide-ranging conversations taking place between black artists, writers and thinkers in Britain during the 1980s. Across its different iterations (Van Abbemuseum, 2016; Nottingham Contemporary, the South London Gallery and Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, all 2017), the exhibitions brought together over 100 works by 40 artists and collectives, spanning painting, sculpture, installation, photography, video and expanded archival displays, examining this critical decade for British culture. Richly illustrated, it includes larger thematic essays, close readings of works and a series of panel discussions, bringing together key scholarly, critical and artistic voices from the 1980s and today. Join the editors and artists Rehana Zaman, Sonia Boyce, and Marlene Smith for an inter-generational dialogue around political and aesthetic debates. The Place is Here, The 1980s: Black Artists in Britain is edited by Nick Aikens and Elizabeth Robbles and published by Sternberg Press and Van Abbemuseum. Nottingham Contemporary’s public programme is jointly funded by Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham.

Nightcleaners: A Screening and Discussion We’re really excited to be screening Nightcleaners (1975), a landmark work of experimental political film recently named one of the BFI’s ‘10 great films about England’s radical history’.  Chronicling an early 1970s campaign to unionize night cleaners in London, its subject prefigures contemporary issues around the intersections of race, gender and precarious labour; as well as recent waves of cleaners’ struggles. Its striking form caused controversy at the time but has since inspired numerous experimental film-makers, including the Black Audio Film Collective.  Following the film there’ll be an audience discussion with invited respondents: a Loughborough University cleaner; Marlous van Boldrik, who is studying for a PhD in artists’ uses and representations of cleaning; and Miffy Ryan, an artist who has both worked as a cleaner and used cleaning in her arts practice. There will be a short introduction to the film by Dr Elspeth Mitchell, whose research explores feminist theory and artists’ film.  This screening has been co-organised with the Feminism, Sexual Politics, and Visual Culture Centre for Doctoral Training at Loughborough University; and forms part of the public programme of Radar’s ‘Embodied Knowledge’ series.   Please note: Eventbrite processes data (including any personal data you may submit during your booking) outside of the European Economic Area.

St Margaret's House are pleased to announce that Lunatraktors will be playing at the Gallery Cafe as part of their debut album UK tour. Dark, trippy overtones and glitchy folk beats to raise your spirits. Margate’s ‘broken folk’ duo Lunatraktors (GB) fuse folk music with body percussion, harmonic singing, tapdance and live looping. The project strips traditional folksong back to beats and vocals, weaving in influences from clowning, cabaret, early punk, trip-hop and broken beat. Inspired by minimalist composers, queer culture, vaudeville and live art, Lunatraktors trawl the archives of Irish, English and Australian popular song for offbeat tales. The stories they unearth of bravery in the face of forced migration, political unrest, abuse of authority, and institutional violence find particular resonance today. Combining the percussive and choreographic talents of ex-Stomp member Carli Jefferson with the four octave range and haunting overtones of trans folk singer Clair Le Couteur, Lunatraktors use the basic ingredients of body and voice to conjure up expansive, unexpected spaces. Equally at home improvising with hands, feet and voices on a station platform, or electrifying a festival stage with custom drum kit, loops, shruti box and flute, Lunatraktors explore the territory between music and theatre. Their debut album ‘This is Broken Folk’ is due to be released on vinyl in March 2019. Watch Lunatraktors spellbinding performance of Turn of the Plough Support on the night will come from one London's most interesting newest unsigned acts: GEISTE. Having recently started performing her electronic set in 2019, with sounds akin to Pantha Du Prince, Kelly Lee Owens and Grimes, we are certain GEISTE will be a main player of the scene by the end of the year. Here is a glimpse into her world with a live performance of Ocean
