We are very saddened to hear the news that the highly influential and inspiring artist, Chantal Akerman has died.
The University had been working closely with Chantal on the first UK exhibition of her art and video installation work at Ambika P3 with curator Michael Mazière and A Nos Amours (curators Joanna Hogg and Adam Roberts).
Chantal was a pioneering film director and theorist. We were privileged to work with Chantal and pay our respects to this wonderful artist. The exhibition of her work will proceed as planned and will be a deserving tribute to the artist.
Westminster Talks series will feature an outstanding and fascinating array of Honorary Doctors, alumni, professors and associates who share history with the University of Westminster.
