John Akomfrah: Purple





Since 2015 we have worked with the Barbican on a series of books presenting exhibitions in The Curve gallery. Designed with collectability in mind, the series is represented through bold typography and a thoughtful consideration of format and materials. Each new volume is composed of a single case-bound signature documenting new commissions and featuring a brief interview with the artist.

Purple, the latest publication in The Curve series, presents an immersive six-channel video installation by the British artist and filmmaker John Akomfrah who addresses climate change by combining archival footage with newly shot film sequences.
