Hannah Epstein works at the cross-section of textiles, experimental games and video art to reimagine the iconography of popular culture, highlighting the cultural negotiation between bottom-up (folk) and top-down (institutional) storytelling. By blurring the lines between traditional craft, popular culture and contemporary art, she aims to isolate and eliminate notions of hierarchy as archaic relics. Epstein will lead a tour and discussion of "Age of You", with refreshments to follow.Find out more »

"It All Makes Sense" recreates a memory of the first time Comilang saw "Perfumed Nightmare" by Kidlat Tahimik — a figure who, like Comilang’s father, comes from Baguio, a mountain city and old American airbase in the Philippines. This teen moment in a basement changed Comilang’s perspective on life.Find out more »

Artist Shezad Dawood is joined by researcher Alice Xia Zhu for a conversation that addresses the fate of microplastics in marine and freshwater contexts, from the San Francisco Bay to the Arctic. This programme is organised in dialogue with Shezad Dawood’s exhibition "Leviathan", presented on MOCA’s Floor 4. "Leviathan" is an ambitious “episodic monster” consisting of ten filmic episodes that envisage a future, uncannily much like our present, to consider possible links between borders, mental health, and marine welfare.Find out more »
London artist, musician, and Turner Prize-winner Martin Creed has created many works involving live music, dance, and language—in the form of word-sculptures, talks, and songs. Most recently he has been developing a new one-person show, Getting Changed, which is a hybrid of a talk, a concert, and a cabaret. Creed has been described as “part court jester and part subversive philosopher,” and his new show explores borders both personal and national, communication in the form of clothes, and words as clothes for feelings—presented in his witty, responsive, freestyle way.Find out more »
