Bass Culture Expo 70/50: UK’s<UrlBlockedError.aspx> largest ever Jamaican music exhibition highlights Windrush generation’s impact on Britain. This is a four-week exhibition exploring the impact of Jamaican and Jamaican-influenced music<https://www.winkball.com/search?preset=reports> on British culture.
This week we have: Reggae, Cinema & Representation.
Friday November 2nd 6:30pm - 8:30pm. FREE.
We are proud to confirm as part of the Bass Culture 70/50 Expo that we will be hosting three In Conversation Punk and Lovers evenings exploring, peer-to-peer, the experiences of reggae, British art and the expression of identity.
Friday November 2nd will open with a discussion on reggae in cinema.
Led by Bass Culture's Lead Investigator, Mykaell Riley, Melenik Shabazz<https://menelikshabazz.co.uk/> and Martin Stellman<https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0826369/> will explore the music that served as the foundation for their respective films Lover's Rock (2011)<https://youtu.be/TiJof_zx2Uk> and Babylon (1980).<https://youtu.be/u0nhcK_bylU>
How did Babylon's examination of reggae's recreational pleasures succeed in absorbing the familial, the employmentary and socio-political backdrops of the day? Babylon's writer/producer Martin Stellman (Quadrophenia, Yardie) will recall the pleasures and pressures.
What compelled documentarian and filmmaker Melenik Shabazz (Blood Ah Go Run, Burning An Illusion ) to explore a British-born sub-genre of reggae capable of providing respite from the social tensions and conflicts of the late 1970s on? Join us to learn first-hand from these practitioners.
This Week: Reggae, Cinema & Representation. Friday November 2nd 6:30pm - 8:30pm. FREE.
Friday 9 November The Rude Boy Catwalk 6:30pm - 8:30pm. FREE
Attendees are invited to come dressed as they were when they were 18 and dancing to Jamican or Jamaican influenced music: be it ska, reggae, jungle or grime.The Catwalk will be the first of its kind to reflect on five decades of fashion inspired by these genres. Please arrive wearing those clothes. If you’ve out grown them, or you no longer have the items, please bring a picture. we'll also have a new pop up exhibit from Thali.
The exhibition is staged by Bass Culture Research, a three-year Arts and Humanities Research Council funded project set up to explore the impact of Jamaican music in the UK. The project made headlines last year after issuing The Grime Report<http://blog.ticketmaster.co.uk/stateofplay/grime.pdf>, which led to the withdrawal of Form 696, a controversial risk assessment form criticised for being discriminatory and targeting genres such as grime.
While Jamaican music has been fundamental to the development of multicultural Britain, its influence has arguably never been recognised. Following recent moves to ramp up police stop and search powers, together with claims that Jamaican-influenced genres such as drill are fuelling gang wars, marginalisation and discrimination risks being on the rise again. Bass Culture 70/50 seeks to challenge these negative interpretations<http://basscultureduk.com/paullette-long-short-a-shout-out-to-all-the-women/> and rather recognise the impact of Jamaican culture on not only the musical canon but on British culture and identity itself.
Partners of the exhibition include the AHRC, Black Cultural Archives, British Library, SOAS, Goldsmiths University, Urbanimage and Camera Press.
Mykaell Riley, Principal Investigator and Director of the Bass Culture Music Unit at the University of Westminster, said “This is the story of the soundtrack to multiculturalism, a hidden history that is still impacting on new music.”
