Keith Piper is a Black British artist of international significance and Beaconsfield is proud to have commissioned the latest digital work in the artist’s oeuvre, Mic Drop. The new work is contextualised by the first London screening of Unearthing The Banker’s Bones (2016), an Arts Council Collection 70th Anniversary commission.

Working with the frisson and anxiety associated with futurological speculation, Jet Black Futures I brings Piper’s recent research and experience as an early pioneer of digital art to bear on current preoccupations of the information age.
