This showcase features new multi-media productions by young creative practitioners responding to 19th century photography associated with Autograph’s ongoing archive research project, The Missing Chapter.

Over a period of six months the group met with artist mentors and guest speakers from a number of disciplines to review, question and interpret issues around cultural memory, representation and the archive, in order to produce new works and curate a programme of events in January 2016.

Using the image portfolio from The Missing Chapter as their point of departure, the TMC Collective’s engagement bridges their contemporary moment with historic research to invoke a wider conversation with their peers and encourage more activity and participation from a younger generation around archives and heritage.

Featuring work by
Heather Agyepong, Yasmine Akim, Lara Akinnawo, Kariima Ali, Abira Hussein, Shanice Martin, Olivia Mathurin Essandoh, and Patricia Ng'ang'a.
