This event is part of our Past Programme

Hear artist Fiona Tan in this public talk as she discusses her new work, Footsteps. Completed in 2022, it is a 97-minute moving image piece that takes letters from the artist's personal archive and film footage from Amsterdam's Eye Filmmuseum's collection to create a study of how someone might contend with political and technological change.

Renowned, too, for her photographic work, she will also talk through her exploration of time and history in her practice.
