In Conversation: Irineu Destourelles and Tiffany Boyle

15:00 on 6 May 2017
Transmission Gallery

Transmission is pleased to present an in-conversation and Q&A between Irineu Destourelles and Tiffany Boyle, at the closing of Irineu’s solo exhibition ‘Tainted Verbal’ at Transmission.

Irineu is an artist born in the Cape Verde islands in West Africa. He grew up in Lisbon, as Portugal struggled with the legacy of a 48-year dictatorship (1926 – 1974) with an ultra-colonial policy in Portuguese speaking Africa. Working across different media, he explores the reproduction of colonial patterns of thinking in contemporary society, with a particular interest in processes of ‘othering’.

Tiffany Boyle is a curator, researcher, writer and lecturer, undertaking her PhD at Birkbeck College, and based in Glasgow. Together with Jessica Carden, she founded the curatorial project Mother Tongue, who have collaboratively produced exhibitions, film programmes, discursive events, essays and publications since 2009. In 2015, Mother Tongue received a Paul Mellon Centre Research Support grant to undertake archive and collection research towards a future ‘AfroScots’ project, bringing together into a single narrative for the first time the activity of Black artists working, living and studying in Scotland, historically and in the present.

The space is wheelchair accessible, but please contact us if you have any further accessibility requirements – [email protected] or 0141 552 7141.
