Michelle Williams Gamaker works with moving image, performance and installation. Her practice is often in dialogue with film history, particularly Hollywood and British studio films. By restaging scenes to reveal their politically problematic, imperialist roots; her work is a form of 'fictional activism' to recast characters originally played by white actors with people of colour. She combines scriptwriting, workshopping with actors, revisiting analogue VFX and producing props to create intricately staged films.

When we're open again (!) the warp Library is open, a de-instututional resource for all. The collection mainly houses artist books, arts-related reference books, zines and pamphlets. These span from the socio-political to the experimental, from 60s avant-garde retrospectives to contemporary exhibition publications; and hopefully everything in between. This in an ever-developing, growing collection.
Really pleased to be hosting SURVEY II in 2021, and to be working with @jerwoodarts and @sitegallery again. A great line up of artists from Wales, Angharad Williams, Tako Taal and our own Cinzia Mutigli alongside brilliant artists Saelia Aparicio, Tereza Červeňová, Sadé Mica, Rebecca Moss, Katarzyna Perlak, Shenece Oretha and Nicolaas Van de Lande.
