imagine art after

It breaks out hearts to let you know that due to unforeseen circumstances imagine art after will be on hold until further notice.

We started in November 2009 with online dialogues between migrant artists & filmmakers who now live in the UK, and those who stayed in the country of origin. After the dialogues ended, the artists researched ideas for new work. From the many ideas submitted, ten projects were selected in May 2010 for further development.

imagine art after‘s first edition ran from 2005-2008 in association with Guardian Unlimited and Tate Britain. Five works by six artists were commissioned for our first exhibition.

Developing New Projects

We are a world art project in multiple stages that brings together migrant artists & filmmakers who now live in the UK with those who stayed in the country of origin.

Ten projects by our artists & filmmakers have been selected to be further developed on this site from May-September 2010 (with a summer break). You can find the proposals here.

The proposals were triggered by online dialogues which took place from November 2009 – January 2010. After the dialogues, our artists & filmmakers researched ideas for new work until April 2010. The ten projects now online were selected from the many ideas submitted.
