The Problem of Perspective: London
Sun 12 Feb 2017 / 2pm - 4pm
The Problem of Perspective is a series of screenings illuminating a distinctly northern perspective on the history of artists’ moving image in England. The project surveys an array of production strategies deployed by video artists and filmmakers across Yorkshire and the Humber, the North East and Cumbria from the ‘60s to the ’90s. This edition of the project combines films and videos by artists associated with LFMC and LVA, with works unearthed during the course of researching the project. Introduced by Pavilion, the screening will include work by John Jones & Claus Oldenburg, Simon Rolph, Leeds Animation Workshop (A Women’s Collective), Peter Samson, Stuart Marshall, Ian Breakwell, Janey Walklin, Richard Grayson, Kevin Atherton and Nick Cope.
Supported by Film Hub North, led by Showroom Workstation. Proud to be part of the BFI Film Audience Network.
