Part lecture, part performance, this unique event will use film, audio and installation to creatively explore some of the themes of the Royal Academy of Arts' upcoming exhibition "Entangled Pasts, 1768–now: Art, Colonialism and Change."

Expect innovative presentations from the JA Projects team on their recent work, screenings of specially commissioned films, and performances of audio pieces, interspersed with accounts from the communities which the practice has worked with.

Founded by architect and artist Jayden Ali, JA Projects’ multidisciplinary work covers art, urban strategy, architecture and performance. Their collaborative commission for the Venice Biennale 2023 was awarded a Special Mention for National Participation. They have created large sculptural works, reimagined changing neighbourhoods, designed socially resilient buildings and produced immersive cultural moments.

The studio is also responsible for the design of "Entangled Pasts, 1768–now: Art, Colonialism and Change", an exhibition which brings together over 100 major contemporary and historic artworks as part of a conversation about art and its role in shaping narratives of empire, enslavement, resistance, abolition and colonialism.
