Page 4 contains imformation relating to the exhibition - text is as follows: Exhibitions/Film - Thusday 6 July - Sunday 6 August: The Black Moving Cube: Black Figuration & the Moving Image / Dark Studio / Free

The Black Moving Cube season represents work from black artists who have used the physical space of the gallery and museum to re-frame a particular set of ideas that comments upon film art culture. Collectively the programme explores ideas of culture and identity through influences including the 70’s Blaxplotation era, contemporary pop culture and the African diaspora.”
At the bottom of the page is a paragraph of text titled: “Perspective - Historically, representations of the black body in the UK have been a constant presence across fine art and popular culture, yet up to now the subject has received very little critical attention. Over the past two decades, new generations of artists working with the moving image have begun to reverse this trend - revealing how images of “otherness’ have been central to commonplace definations of identity within the symbolic order of the West.”
