Caroline Molloy chairs Decolonising the Gaze research symposium, in association with Grain Photohub.

This online research symposium follows on from GRAIN and The New Art Gallery Walsall’s collaboration on the exhibition ‘Too Rich A Soil’ which opened on the 15th November 2019 and closed early due to lockdown. The exhibition presented new work that dealt with themes of identity and representation, from three British artists’ of South Asian descent, Arpita Shah, Maryam Wahid and Nilupa Yasmin. ¬†This session originally intended to be a face to face symposium has been rescheduled as an online event. ¬†Each artist will have the opportunity to share a selection of their practice and contribute to crucial conversations about the politics of representation.

The event was organised by GRAIN in collaboration with The New Art Gallery Walsall and was chaired by academic Caroline Molloy.
