Opening Reception: Friday 9 September, 6.30-8pm – all welcome. Talk by artist Lala Meredith-Vula at 5.30-6.30pm, The Bracknell Gallery and Mansion Space Galleries Migration and travelling across geopolitical borders have always been important elements of man’s activity throughout history. In recent decades, owing to the rapid development of transportation, travelling across borders has become a more influential issue in modern society, and it has created the phenomena of displacement and hybridised cultures. The exhibition explores the ideas of travelling, nostalgia, memory, and the issues of identity, covering various themes of postcolonialism, including diaspora, the sense of belonging and authenticity.
