“Attending Working Mens College was the best decision I made right after sixth form . The foundation course steered me the right way and gave me a strong foundation for my career. I am grateful to all my Tutors, technicians and course mates who made my experience. I was encouraged to experiment and try different things on the course and that has strengthened my practice whiles at University.”

Our very own Hannah Black, alumni from the Foundation Diploma Art and Design is the Wondering/Wilding show at IMT this month, go and check her out!!
The Wandering/WILDING: Blackness on the Internet group exhibition is on at London’s IMT Gallery, opening November 3 and running to December 11.
IMT has invited New York-based artist and writer Legacy Russell and features work by Niv Acosta, Evan Ifekoya, E. Jane, Devin Kenny, Fannie Sosa, Tabita Rezaire and Hannah Black. The exhibition brings work together that is currently exploring “race via the the material of the Internet” and is a response to Doreen St. Félix‘s essay ‘The Peril of Black Mobility’.
The title alludes to the identity of the flâneur, a term coined by Baudelaire that refererd to “a roving soul in search of a body” and situates “a spotlight on the privileged white body that Baudelaire’s ‘roving soul’ has historically inhabited. Here, the panel asks: what can the Internet do for the black flâneur?”
Related events to this programme include Technology Now: Blackness on the Internet at London’s ICA, which will host a discussion between Rizvana Bradley, Taylor Le Melle, Derica Shields and moderated by Russell.
Niv Acosta will perform Clapback at IMT on December 1; first premiered early this year at KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin.
Evan Ifekoya and Ain Bailey will be in conversation at the ICA on December 9.
