Harlesden High Street and Diasporas Now present a multi-storey, post-apocalyptic labyrinth of ritual objects, live performances, paintings, and installations. The exhibition yearns toward ancestral knowledge and liberation, a visceral rooting to Earth, ether, and martian soil.
Extraterra forges a path forward, or rather inward – a collective manifestation of hope beyond the oppression of politicised, displaced, and intersectionality-marginalised bodies.
Harlesden High Street is a POC-led space with a mission to bridge social and cultural gaps in contemporary art, working with and providing resources for underrepresented artists.
Diasporas Now is a multidisciplinary performance art platform for artists of non-Western backgrounds who use performance as acts of self-representation.
Curated by Linda Mognato and Diasporas Now.
