Rituals of Speaking
Rituals of Speaking is a series of film-led projects that explores how artists represent the voices of others through collective storytelling. Borrowing its title from Linda Alcoff’s essay “The Problem of Speaking for Others” (1991), which analyzes the contexts in which speaking and being heard are made possible, the series responds to recurring questions over who speaks for whom in the stories we tell, by redirecting our attention to how the stories are told. Rituals of Speaking includes recent and newly commissioned work by Helen Cammock, Dora García, Ephraim Asili and Natalia Lassalle-Morillo.
Each film installation is accompanied by a series of public programs alongside a collection of artworks, texts and contextual materials that provide further insight into the artist’s research and collaborative processes.
