Rendering the Real - 22nd March 27th April 2012
198 Contemporary Arts and Learning
198 Railton Road
A research and practice-based
interactive symposium and exhibition.
Engaging the visual representations of art practitioners and their project participants.
Rendering the Real will present its first project in the form of a symposium and exhibition titled the “Fourth Moment”. This concept is an extension of Stuart Halls’ discussion about Black artists in the UK diaspora as having had three distinct moments in post war history. It was here he suggested that artists during the 90s operated in a problem space which was defined by the 80s and that the possibility of an emerging "Fourth Moment", at the time of his writing would have been too early for discussion.
The intention here is to bring forward what characterises the current mode of arts practice the “Fourth Moment” and highlight some of its challenges.
