Tate Exchange

Warwick Tate Exchange

We are delighted to have three of our public engagement projects feature as part of Warwick’s week at Tate Exchange at Tate Modern, London, in June 2018. The week long takeover, The Production of Truth, Justice and History, explores the nature of truth.

We are told we are in the age of ‘post-truth’. But when has the truth ever been simple? Does everyone agree what is just? Can more than one version of history exist? How do we come to believe any of these notions are stable?

Between 12-17 June, we will be exhibiting both a photographic display from Past Time, our project with Rideout at HMP Hewell exploring the history of food in prison, and our audio installation with Fuel, Lock Her Up exploring female incarceration. Both exhibits are accompanied by a ticketed (free) panel discussion.

We also have a one-off showing a film of our play, Disorder Contained: A theatrical examination of madness, prison and solitary confinement, accompanied by a panel discussion, and both Professor Hilary Marland and Dr Rachel Bennett will be giving Ten Minute Talks on contemporary artworks in relation to their research.

We are delighted to be hosting three Coventry schools at a private showing of Disorder Contained on the Thursday, supported by Warwick Arts Centre’s Creative Learning team.
