Focusing on the formation of new perspectives through an extensive range of artistic journeys, this symposium explores some of the current concerns facing artists working on and across the borders of art, moving image and time-based practice. Within this moment of extensive mobility and migration, artists come together to consider how being elsewhere might, like alchemy, transform the practice of art.
Speakers include: Ricardo Basbaum, Caryl Phillips, Harold Offeh, Jonzi D, Rene Gabri, Ayreen Anastas, Tirdad Zolghadr, Irit Rogoff, Jackie Kay, Keith Piper, susan pui san lok, Kodwo Eshun, Fernando Arias, Oreet Ashery, Dinu Li, Margareta Kern, Ralph Hoyte, Jiva Parthipan, and Trevor Woolery.

Produced by Arts Council England in association with Tate Modern and the British Film Institute, the Necessary Journeys arts initiative takes its cue from the bfi's Black World project, and explores the diverse ways in which art connects with film and the moving image.
