LUX is delighted to invite local residents and community members to join us for a free breakfast opening and an opportunity to preview the exhibition Arwa Aburawa and Turab Shah: ‘And still, it remains’. We will provide coffee, tea and pastries in our conservatory, with artists in attendance.
All welcome, drop in any time between 9 – 11 am.
‘And still, it remains’ is a new artists’ film that examines time, toxic colonialism and how we survive the end of our world. In 2021, radioactive sand resulting from French nuclear bombs travelled in the winds all the way from the Algerian Sahara back to France. The bombs had been detonated in Algeria back in the 1960s. These returning winds were a reminder that the environmental legacies of colonialism cannot be forgotten or contained; it also raised the more pertinent question of how people live with the afterlife of toxic colonialism.
‘And still, it remains’ is presented in collaboration with Open City Documentary Festival (6-12 September 2023) and was commissioned by Liverpool Arab Arts Festival, supported using funds from Arts Council England and The Elephant Trust.
The exhibition runs from 8 September to 14 October 20023.
Open Thursday to Sunday 12-5 pm
