Bitesize: Talk and tour with Asiya Hussain every Saturday — Impressions Gallery

Pop in to Impressions Gallery on Saturdays at 12pm to learn a little bit more about the exhibition from our friendly Gallery Assistant, Asiya Hussain. The talk is perfectly timed to follow on from Story Time in City Library, next door to the Gallery. Please note that Bitesize will not run on Saturday 25 January. 

Asiya says, ‘Join me for a casual 5-minute introductory talk about Nalini by Arpita ShahIt’ll be short, brief and to the point!” Afterwards, feel free to browse our wide range of photobooks in our bookshop, or check out the family activities at Saturday Stop if you’re interested in some colouring and creativity.

Spanning India, East Africa and the UK, Nalini explores the connected histories of Arpita Shah’s mother, her grandmother and herself. The exhibition reveals ancestral intimacies across space and time, and how their histories, memories and bodies are intertwined. Nalini is a personal journey for Arpita Shah, which has allowed her to reconnect with the past through her maternal lineage and explore how migration, distance and loss have shaped their lives.
