Clifford Owens: Pictures from Lubaina’s score

Part of Clifford Owens: Better the Rebel You Know

Join us for the launch of New York-based artist Clifford Owens’s debut European exhibition. Owens will perform his new commission Anthology (2014) live, delivering scores (short sets of instructions, some specific, others open to interpretation) contributed by a selection of British artists.

The scores, contributed by artists including Godfried Donkor, David Blandy and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, draw on British and African-American history and convey themes of pop culture, violence and generosity. Owens’s interpretations will encompass sound, video, photography and live performance.
