ROSE EKEN AT MUSEE NATIONAL DE l’HISTOIRE DE l’IMMIGRATION, PARIS

10 Mar 2019 - 12:00

Rose Eken presents a collection of immersive sculptures – ceramic music instruments and equipments, resistance objects, a battle jacket and 100 miniature cardboard drumkits – at the exhibition Paris-Londres Music Migrations 1962-1989. Through more than 600 documents and artworks, the exhibition explores the close relationship between music, civil rights movement, political activism and migratory flows, which defined the era 1962-1989. The exhibition demonstrates how successive generations of immigrants to these two former colonial powers used music to stake their claim to equal rights, affirm their presence in public spaces, and contribute to the urban, economic and cultural tranformation.
