In Conversation: Alberta Whittle

The award winning artist sits down with curator Ekow Eshun to discuss the relationship between race and climate change in her practice.

Featured in the We Are History exhibition, Alberta Whittle's from the forest to the concrete (to the forest) (2019) was developed during the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian in 2019. Whittle interweaves performance with footage of the cyclone's destruction, calling upon viewers to reflect upon their relative comfort living in the UK and elsewhere, in contrast to the destructive impact of the weather and societal inequalities affecting other parts of the world.
