This exhibition presents a think-tank that explores the concept of cultural congestion in visual art practices. As international migration grows in the UK, the movement of people, objects and identities have taken on a political and cultural character of their own, which leaves us with a cultural congestion - Jam. Does this congestion enable pausing and reflection of the richness and diversity across cultures or does it exhaust us?
