UAL Joint Chairs of Black Art and Design Paul Goodwin and Sonia Boyce Present: GHOSTS 

Ghosts is a new year-long series of single work and focused displays featuring key art works from a range of British Black and Asian artists exploring ideas around technologies, subjectivities and contemporary art practice. How have artists interrogated the complex relationships between technology, subjectivity and strategies of art making in an age of migration, globalisation and dispersed diaspora identities? What can art tell us about the transformation of gendered, class and racialised subjectivities in our techno-cultural and information rich societies? What does a critical art practice look like today? What are the excesses that hover as a ghostly spectre around forms of representation and its technologies? These are some of the questions that the displays by contemporary practitioners will attempt to address across the University of the Arts London starting in November 2014 at Chelsea College of Arts.
