Join Turner Prize winning artist Lubaina Himid and some beloved speakers and thinkers from Birmingham and beyond as they react to the exhibition, Found Cities, Lost Objects: Women in the City.
Chaired by writer and co-founder of The White Pube Gabrielle de la Puente, this fascinating discussion will mark the final weekend of this groundbreaking exhibition. Lubaina and Gabrielle will joined by writer, editor and curator Sumaya Kassim; award-winning British artist, producer and presenter Dawinder Bansal and artist and writer Selina Thompson. Each speaker will pick a piece from the show that resonated with them the most, and share their reflections.
How do buildings, streets and neighbourhoods shape our lives? Who were they built for? Can we envision an alternative city, one which is more inclusive and welcoming for everyone?
Expect personal stories of memory and change, joy and hope, power and pain, as the panel reflects on all of these questions and more.
We recommend ticket holders explore the free exhibition beforehand. The event will run from 4pm to 5.15pm in the Waterhall Gallery at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. There will be a chance to talk and meet together afterwards with refreshments provided.
“Cities are places to make history, make money and the ability to predict the future. They are full of memories, lost lives and lost objects.”
— Lubaina Himid CBE.
Tickets are £5 per person and will be available to purchase in person on the day or in advance by booking online. This event will be BSL interpreted by Performance Interpreting.
This talk is co-produced by Birmingham Museums and WOW - Women of the World.
