GoMA hosts six artists in conversation, paying homage to the TV series After Dark, a late-night discussion programme broadcast between 1987 and 1997. What kinds of conversations would artists have After Dark?
This event is part of Polygraphs, a group exhibition centred on Abstract, by Hito Steyerl, which explores truth, fiction and evidence in a complex world. After Dark plays with the museum institution, the public and the private and how our spaces are informed by the conversations within them.
