The Zayn Malik Zindabad group screening is on at the Education Space at Lewisham Arthouse on August 26.
Organised by Zarina Muhammad and Gabrielle de la Puente of The White Pube, and co-hosted with Sophie Chapman and Kerri Jefferis, the evening will show moving image art by artists that “happen 2 b young and in the South Asian Diaspora” featuring works by Somnath Bhatt, Himali Singh Soin, Anisa Jackson, Sabella D’Souza, Seema Mattu, Ilavenil Jayapalan, Rathai Manivannan, Katy Jalili, Hassan E Vawda and Zarina Muhammed.
The press release frames the evening within a humorous yet succinct message that declares: “The White Pube is tired of white ppl, white walls, and white wine. So for one night only, we are hosting brown ppl, white walls and chai. Come and view work by brown artists in a real vacuum, where brown-ness is banal, where you can O.O the art without the white-iarchy lookin over ur shoulder, askin if they can eat ur Other.”
