Reading the Realness2023
As part of Radical Reel at Leeds Art Gallery, the gallery welcomes their most recent acquisition, Harold Offeh’s Reading the Realness (2020 – ongoing). Here, the artist has worked closely with members of the Youth Collective and its forum for older communities Meet and Make to create a performance based on scripts from popular television and radio chat shows. Together, these works explore how we can strengthen bonds and connections between people, in times where communities have found themselves increasingly fractured and isolated.
