Migrating Worlds: The Art of the Moving Image in Britain features eight of Britain’s leading film and video artists. Works by Theo Eshetu, Isaac Julien, Rosalind Nashashibi, Charlotte Prodger, Zina Saro-Wiwa, Zineb Sedira, John Smith, and Alia Syed address the relationship between people and place, especially as the result of forced migration and dislocation.
These artists confront questions of racial and gender identity, exploring politics and history—including the colonial exploitation of peoples and the environment. While their filmmaking styles range from the visually poetic to the conceptual, each artist offers contemporary insights into British life and culture today.
Migrating Worlds: The Art of the Moving Image in Britain is on view at the Yale Center for British Art (1080 Chapel Street, New Haven, Connecticut) from October 10 to December 29, 2019.
