An Infinity of Traces | Screenings | Ufuoma Essi All That You Can’t Leave Behind

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.

Ufuoma Essi will be speaking as part of the final talk: 'Archive, Memory and the Moving Image' on 28 May, 6pm BST (also featuring John Akomfrah, Rhea Storr and Alberta Whittle in discussion, moderated by Ekow Eshun, curator of An Infinity of Traces).
