Lost and found: traces, spectres and contemporary art in Southampton

November 17, 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Free

Launch of the Being Human Festival in Southampton.

Join us and experience unheard individual and collective stories linked to the city of Southampton through images, sounds, objects and spaces. Get involved in exploring the map of hidden narratives, highlighted by contemporary artists evoking distant voices, absences and presences. Let’s get lost and found, and lost again to explore the city in a new way. Contribute to unique artworks, create your own map of experiences and participate in a collective exhibition.

The launch of the Being Human Festival in Southampton features introductions by curator Dr Flavia Loscialpo and artists-academics Sarah Filmer, Dr Sebastiane Hegarty, Jennifer Anyan, Dr Atsu Ito, and Rosy Maguire.

The ‘meet and greet’ the artists will be accompanied by a call for contributions for the collaborative exhibitions ‘Mapping Lost and Found’ and ‘The Museum of Dustology’ (Dr AtsuIto).


This event is part of the series Let’s get lost. Southampton as the Situationist city.
