British artist and filmmaker John Akomfrah presents his ambitious new installation, Purple. Being displayed at the Barbican Centre, the six-channel video installation addresses climate change, human communities and the wilderness at a time when, according to the UN, greenhouse gas emissions are at their highest levels in history due to human activity. Purple addresses a number of topics, including animal extinctions, the memory of ice, the plastic ocean and global warming with archival footage being used to produce a newly short film and sound score.

 

About Barbican Centre

Described by the Queen as 'one of the wonders of the modern world' , the Barbican Centre has also been voted 'London's ugliest building'. Ugly or not, this multi-faceted performance and arts venue is truly wondrous. Open 363 days a year, it offers the most diverse program of any London venue. More about Barbican Centre
