Archives & Identities: Online Screening Kobby Adi

22 February 2021 - 21 March 2021

Between 22 February – 21 March, Kobby Adi (New Contemporaries alumni 2018) screens Rumours of Riots (2019) on our website.

Rumours of Riots is situated in artist Keith Piper's studio and archive in Brixton. Intended to be viewed in a gallery context, it takes the form of an endless loop with no beginning, end or climax. As the loop persists, subtle shifts occur which can only be registered with attentive viewing.
