Languid Hands have been taking their time to re-think and restructure their programme No Real Closure which was due to start at Cubitt in April. They decided not to rush into remote programming at this difficult time but they did want to share some of the ideas that are going into planning their programme.

No Real Closure, will demonstrate their intentional commitment to working primarily with black artists, especially those who identify as queer or trans, whose work is often overlooked, misunderstood, or undermined. Black artists deserve such a dedication in the context of a UK art world that assumes Black art as monolithic and limited in its scope and breadth. Absent is the disproportionate emphasis on surface-level survey style programmes and representational focus: gathering to manifest collaboration, exchange, dialogue, relationships – a sum greater than its individual parts.
