Art in Flux & National Gallery X: Reclaimed
March 30 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm BST

Curators & Speakers Art in Flux: Aphra Shemza | Maria Almena | Olive Gingrich
Chair National Gallery X: Ali Hossaini
As London’s foremost forum for pioneering media arts, Art in Flux is excited to present Art in Flux: Reclaimed, an online talk held in collaboration with National Gallery X. As an eclectic avant-garde, Art in Flux provides a bridge between media artists and established art institutions, reclaiming visibility for diverse voices within the art world. This event, curated by the three Art in Flux Co-founders, Olive Gingrich, Maria Almena and Aphra Shemza, invites curators and activists Aminder Virdee, Asshokumar Mistry and Helen Starr to discuss platform cultivation, art communities and the reclaiming of spaces for underrepresented groups. The event will feature a panel discussion chaired by Ali Hossaini, Co-Director of National Gallery X.
The need to discuss curatorial strategies around representation is now more important than ever. Taking into account that media art is an underrepresented form within the contemporary art world, this event will discuss how today’s curators and media artists celebrate diversity, and representation of gender, cultural heritage and neuro-diversity. While UK art institutions continue to address issues around representation and diversity, inequalities remain in their collections and programs. What role can independent art organizations play to facilitate a greater representation within these spaces?
Alongside the event, Flux will launch Art in Flux: Reclaimed virtual exhibition which celebrates some of the most radical and innovative media artists of our times, showcasing artists from the underrepresented spectra of society such as Women in Tech, LGBTQ+, BAME and neurodiverse artists. The exhibition features work by Aminder Virdee, Aphra Shemza & Stuart Batchelor, Camille Baker, Danielle Brathwaite-shirley, Enrique Agudo, Kimatica Studio, Natasha Trotman, Olive Gingrich & Shama Rahman and Ro Greengrass and is supported by Arts Council England.
