which are open for Art Late. This suggested route should help you navigate your way through

Art Late Event: 7:00 – 7:20pm Artist Luke Collins will present a conversation between the

of new archives and the deployment of historical figures contrary to historical time.
This presentation will question how, in light of a certain loss of authority for the 'grand
historical narrative', artists are telling and re-telling our histories and making new networks of
association and contradiction to create a chorus of varied and nuanced historical voices.
