The next exhibition is at the Protected content . It is a six-video installation that focuses on some of the most popular topics in the social and political relations agenda, such as the environment and climate change.
Telegraph refers to the exhibition as: "At points, the work becomes ‘purple’ to the point of manipulative. There’s a build of emotive, Philip Glass-esque piano music and weepy footage, particularly toward the end, and the installation of suspended plastic oil canisters and a pile of rubber car tyres within the Curve feels like overkill (or perhaps a way of filling unused space). Purple doesn’t need any of this. Akomfrah drives home his concerns with compelling clarity, sparking off chains of association that are grimly disturbing while offering a reminder of all the beauty that we stand to lose."
