Metal presents the launch of In Other Words 2, hosted by Kate Marsh and Xavier de Sousa.Following the first edition of In Other Words, which shared urgent reflections from 49 marginalised artists in 2020, this second edition focuses on the ‘now’.
We wanted to acknowledge the position of artists in a period of great change and unknowing. In 2021, following numerous lockdowns and continued questions about the future of the arts, we wanted to create a second iteration of In Other Words, asking “How are you now”, this question was intended to make space for the experiences and perceptions of artists re-building their lives and their practice in unchartered territory.
Join at Chalkwell Hall for the launch of this latest collection, which shares prose, poetry, drawing, collage and photography from 40 artists across the UK. The book explores the call for change from a group who are rich in wisdom and shared experience, bringing their works together to explore what it means to be marginalised in the UK.
