Join us on Thursday 15 June 5.30-7.30pm for the launch of Afterall's newest Exhibition Histories publication - Reshaping the Field: Arts of the African Diasporas on Display at the Stuart Hall Library. There will be brief introductions to the texts from editor Nana Adusei-Poku and artist collective Languid Hands (Rabz Lansiquot & Imani Mason Jordan).

The thirteenth title in the series, Reshaping the Field: Arts of the African Diaspora on Display explores key moments that have created ruptures in how Blackness has been framed through exhibitions, emphasising how Black artists have been viewed and African diasporic art histories have been shaped.

The publication will be available to buy alongside other Afterall works and specially paired with iniva's publications for a special launch discount. Refreshments served from 5.30pm and chance to see our current exhibition https://iniva.org/programme/projects/can-publications-be-porous/ - Can publications be porous? co-curated by Lauren Craig.

Afterall is a Research Centre of University of the Arts London, located at Central Saint Martins. Afterall focuses its research activities on the value of contemporary art and its relation to wider society. Its specialist research areas include 'Art Becoming Public', which addresses exhibitions, institutions and what happens when art becomes public and 'The Work of Art', which focuses on researching through the work of art, while interrogating the scope and parameters of this commitment. The research centre works with partners across three continents to deepen this enquiry and make it available through publications, digital access, conferences, screenings and talks.
