LOOKING, MEDIATED. New LUX Screening Programme

Sun 5 Oct 2014 / 6pm

Open School East
Book online


Looking, Mediated is a new screening programme of moving image works by artists who utilise, address and challenge contemporary forms of visual experience. Often traversing formal boundaries, these works explore how we view and interact with imagery today, and how these interactions inform social and cultural relationships both on and off the screen. Through forms of audio-visual production such as green screen, 3D animation, avatars, ASMR, image galleries, self-broadcast and interpretative documentary, the potential of the screen as a site for the departure from, or surrogate for, reality is interrogated.

Looking, Mediated is curated by Matt Carter for LUX

In partnership with Art Licks Weekend LUX present a special screening of Looking, Mediated with new commissions from Fabienne Hess and Patrick Hough.

The Art Licks Weekend is a festival that showcases the work of pioneering young artists, curators, galleries and project spaces in London, 3 – 5 October 2014.
