A few words from John Akomfrah
Barbican Meets : John Akomfrah
We meet British artist John Akomfrah to talk art, climate change and how he drew inspiration from his own life for his new commission in The Curve.
'John Akomfrah: Purple' takes place in The Curve until 7 January 2018 http://bit.ly/2hM7zNg
Pushing the boundaries of theatre, dance, film, music and visual art, the Barbican is a world-class arts and learning centre.
