Larry Achiampong & David Blandy - Genetic Automata

Tue-Wed: 10-6pm; Thu: 10-8pm (Late Opening); Fri-Sun: 10-6pm

‘Genetic Automata’ is an ongoing body of video works by artists Larry Achiampong and David Blandy, exploring race and identity in an age of avatars, videogames and DNA ancestry. The series investigates where deeply ingrained ideas about race come from and the role that science has played in shaping these perceptions.

The exhibition premiers ‘_GOD_MODE_’, the newest film in the series, commissioned by Wellcome Collection, Black Cultural Archives and Wellcome Connecting Science.
