Languid Hands were unable to open their inaugural exhibition, Towards a Black Testimony, in April. As an alternative, they are working on a publication that will feature works from the artists commissioned for the show, Barby Asante, Rebecca Bellantoni, Christopher Kirubi, Derica Shields and Mayfly, as well as new commissions, and reflections on the previous iterations of the project. More soon on that, for now, you can grab a copy of 'Objects Who Testify', an essay pamphlet by Languid Hands' Imani Robinson, published by, that explores the theoretical basis of the project.

Towards a Black Testimony is an ongoing project that brings together artists, writers and organisers to explore the im/possibility of Black testimony using their film Towards a Black Testimony: Prayer/Protest/Peace [commissioned by @JerwoodArts] as a call and response. This model was showcased at @Stroom_Den_Haag in October 2019 in a weekend of programming with performances from Black Quantum Futurism, Zinzi Minott, Shenece Oretha and Rebecca Bellantoni, and in an evening of readings at Jerwood Arts with responses from Chloe Filani, Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley, Christopher Kirubi and Derica Shields.
