All That You Can’t Leave Behind (2019) is an experimental, appropriated video archive film that explores the relationship between black women’s collective experience with music, history and the act of reclamation.
It is the first in a series of film screenings that accompany the exhibition, An Infinity of Traces (13 April – 6 June 2021) a physical exhibition and an online presentation featuring the work of 11 Black artists. The show, the screenings and a trilogy of online talks all explore notions of race, history, being and belonging.
