Purple

TBA21, Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza

Madrid

Award-winning British artist and filmmaker John Akomfrah explores climate change, rising sea levels, and extreme weather events in his most ambitious project to date.
Thought-provoking and powerful, the immersive six-channel video intersperses archival footage with newly shot film, animated by a hypnotic score.

Purple draws upon Akomfrah’s travels in the French Polynesia with TBA21–Academy, which promotes advocacy for ocean conservation through cross-disciplinary programs and artistic production. The exhibition is curated by TBA21–Academy.
