This Sunday Numbi is back in inner London with Cross- Currents- Diasporic wandering at Tate Exchange
We’ve teamed up with Thick/er Black Lines and The Anarchist Citizenship project for a Cross- Currents- Numbi Zine launch and gallery conversation with Amal Alhaag. This is also an opportunity to find out/get involved with our new project; Coming Here – Being Here: Archiving British Somali Heritage.
Amal Alhaag is an Amsterdam based independent curator, cultural programmer and radio host with an interest in alternative archives, counter-culture, de-coloniality, feminism and global social issues. Her work explores these themes through short and long-term collaborations with artists, institutions and audiences.
Since 2008, her projects infuse music and art with current affairs, de-coloniality and everyday anecdotes to invite, stage or examine ‘uncomfortable‘ issues, unknown stories and un-welcome audiences to write, share or compose narratives in impermanent settings.
Alhaag is currently curator of public programming and research at the Research Centre for Material Culture at the Tropenmuseum. Together with artist Maria Guggenbichler, she ran the Side Room; room for intersectional art and theory in Amsterdam. In addition, she is also the artistic director of contemporary urban culture platform Metro54 and associate curator of public programming at Framer Framed; a global art platform for critical reflection in Amsterdam.
