RAMM Lates

Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery, Exeter
21 April 2023
18.30 to 22.00

Come along to our adults only, after-hours night of entertainment exploring otherworldly connections to nature and the environment.

This Lates is inspired by our new, specially curated, exhibition Earth Spells: Witches of the Anthropocene which responds to the climate and ecological crises through the work of eight contemporary artists.

Hear from one of the artists, Lucy Stein, who will be in conversation with Professor Marion Gibson from Exeter University - joined by RAMM’s contemporary art curator Lara Goodband.

Enjoy lively music from folk group The Red Dirt Band as well as traditional Dartmoor tunes played by musician Laurie Goodband. The evening will end with our popular silent disco - an experience not to be missed!

Listen to poetry performances inspired by the Earth Spells exhibition as well as poet Pascale Petit. In this short reading, Petit will read from her new collection about Bodmin Moor.

Witness performances around the museum by the South West Dance Hub, exploring embodied responses to the natural world, evoking ‘witchiness’ and mysticism, through movements that echo beating rhythms of the earth.

Create your own charms, and consider the charm’s role in the interaction between humans and the natural world, with Anna Milon from Exeter University.

Transform into a bird with the playful installation Featherheads, a reflective visual art and movement piece which highlights some of our most endangered British birds. Or enjoy time exploring folklore with author and researcher Mark Norman, and objects from the Folklore Library and Archive.

Finally there will the chance to join the Exeter Science Centre and grab a virtual reality headset to enjoy environmental short film We Are Guardians.
