motiroti develops creative projects and services for museums and heritage organisations, anywhere in the world. We collaborate with our community of international artists, and draw on 15 years of expertise in engaging diverse communities - to deliver the most robust, innovative contemporary experiences for this sector.
Working with world-class museums such as the V&A, the Whitney and the Science Museum, we develop projects that involve artists, communities and new technologies – such as multiplicities, our current 'digital walking tours', that invite city visitors to experience a migrant's creative view of its streets.
In 2006 motiroti was commissioned by London's Serpentine Gallery, to create Priceless for the Exhibition Road Cultural Group. A combination of multimedia art, collections of prestigious museums and secret archives, Priceless merged the voices of individuals and institutions in new ways. Our participatory roadshows used objects of great value to inspire people to share unique stories and memories through film and sound, and to go on imaginative journeys around the notion of 'priceless'. The project featured video installations, mobile exhibitions, artist-led guided tours and a large-scale event where imagery drawn from participatory workshops was mapped onto the walls of London's Natural History Museum.
an outstanding project....we are immensely proud to have presented it.Julia Peyton-Jones, Director, Serpentine Gallery
In 2012 we produced Streets of Gold, an installation that reached over 120,000 people. Streets of Gold enabled 5 artists who had migrated to London from across the globe to engage with the Museum of London's collection, and to create new artworks reflecting their personal journeys. Creatively directed by artist Daniel Saul, Streets of Gold offered a fresh vision of London through migrant eyes, and a reminder that cities are built on the dreams of successive newcomers.
....engaging, beautifully curated, and revealing in the ways in which individual artists reflect on the history and legacies of London through museum artefacts - as a city built on migration, with all the myths and silences within public memory this entailsGemma Romain., The Equiano Centre, University College London
motiroti is increasingly working with museums as they renew themselves and their programmes to fit these fast-changing times. We're inspired to bring together artists and designers, collections and communities, digital and physical.
