‘as a point of departure’ – a talk with Jesse Gerard Mpango

May 15, 2024 11:45 am

Saturday 8th June – 6pm

Within the frame of “as a point of departure”, an exhibition of sound work by Artists Darragh Amelia and Alma Simba runing 7th-23rd June 2024, we are hosting a talk with Ajabu Ajabu’s founding member and storyteller Jesse Gerard Mpango.

Ajabu Ajabu employs participatory, open ended approaches in its programming and events as a way of exploring de-centralised and communal forms of presentation, production and preservation of audio visual work in Tanzania. Recurrent within Jesse’s work is the capacity for participatory rituals of imagining to unsettle and dislocate dominant narratives and extractive power structures.

Travel and childcare bursaries are avialble, please get in touch at market@marketgallery.org to request the bursaries or discuss any other access concerns. Market Gallery is situated within a wheelchair accessible street facing unit and is equiped with wheelchair accesible and gender neutral toilets.

“as a point of departure” is presented within Glasgow International 2024, Scotland’s biennial festival of contemporary art.
