From personal and historical memory to ideas of time and language, renowned artist Darren Almond reflects on his practice across film, painting, sculpture and photography, in conversation with writer and critic Martin Herbert.

This event is part of the Whitechapel Gallery’s talk series Prix Pictet Conversations on Photography, which provides a platform for leading contemporary photographers from around the world to discuss and present their practice.


The theme for the eighth cycle of the Prix Pictet is Hope a theme that offers a wide range of creative possibilities and a strong set of connections to the Prix Pictet's overriding theme of sustainability. Hope in the face of adversity. Recycling. Reforestation. Rewilding. Science – advances in medicine – and technological solutions for global environmental problems. Falling poverty levels. It is time to examine some of the positive actions on sustainability that are beginning to emerge by contrast with the alarming analysis that constantly assails us in the global media.
