The 2017 Jarman Award Film Screening
Including a Q&A with artist Lawrence Abu Hamdan
Free entry, book via Eventbrite.
The artists selected for this year’s Jarman Award shortlist provide an important insight into the country’s very best moving image artists working now.
The shortlisted artists’ work includes single-screen works, web series and immersive gallery installations that weave in music and performance and blur the boundaries between fiction and documentary. From a darkly gothic fairy tale about a girl who wants to change her voice to an artwork that operates in the field of human rights activism. From autobiographical works filmed on an iPhone to augmented reality sculptural works.
Subjects range from collective dance performance to death in the digital age.
This screening includes works by all this year's shortlisted artists: Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Oreet Ashery, Adham Faramawy, Melanie Manchot, Charlotte Prodger and Marianna Simnett.
