From October 6, 2017-January 7, 2018, British artist and filmmaker, John Akomfrah will debut Purple, an immersive, six-channel video installation for the Curve: Barbican in London. Purple charts the incremental shifts in climate change across the planet and its effects on human communities, biodiversity, and the wilderness. As the follow up to Vertigo Sea (2015), Akomfrah’s standout work at the 56th Venice Biennale, Purple forms the second chapter in a planned quartet of films addressing the aesthetics and politics of matter.
