Wayfinder: Larry Achiampong & JMW Turner curated by Larry Achiampong is the first major solo exhibition by British-Ghanaian artist Larry Achiampong. The exhibition includes the newly commissioned feature-length film ‘Wayfinder’, which follows a young girl’s journey across England. Achiampong has also curated a display of paintings by JMW Turner and collaborated with Turner Contemporary to create a gaming room.

Also showing: Sirens: Sophie von Hellermann and Anne Ryan.
