Abstract

The ‘Slanguages’ exhibition features the work, archives and ephemera related to three Birmingham-based artists who use different languages in their musical and artistic performances. The exhibition showcases RTKAL (aka Joshua Holness), a grime and spoken word artist; Rinkoo Barpaga, an urban sign language, deaf comedian and film maker; and Lekan Babalola, a percussionist. All use different forms of language in their work.

The exhibition features how these artist work with multi-languages, different popular cultures and British urban street styles in the formation of their music and related artwork. The exhibition also illustrates how multi-lingual languages and performance are used and taken up by different artists in their creative work in the UKs creative industries.
