  • LFMC 50: Notes from the Underground 1980-82

    Our celebration of the 50th anniversary of the London Filmmakers’ Co-operative continues with this evening programmed by Anna La Thew and Steve Farrer.

    "Steve and I were elected at the 1980 AGM and a life long friendship began. The 1980's were the start of film-makers being actively encouraged to publicise, exhibit, distribute and courier Co-op films, in person, internationally. We were committed to the Co-operative as an act of romantic resistance, its manifesto, its openness, its freedom and a lot of us were from up North.

  • Bruce Conner: It’s All True

    Bruce Conner: It’s All True is the first monographic museum exhibition in New York of the artist Bruce Conner, the first large survey of his work in 16 years, and the first comprehensive retrospective. The exhibition brings together over 250 objects in mediums including film and video, painting, assemblage, drawing, prints, photography, photograms, and performance.

    Bruce Conner: It’s All True presents a lifetime of work by Conner (1933–2008), one of the foremost American artists of the 20th century, whose transformative work defies straightforward categorization. An early practitioner of found-object assemblage and a pioneer of found-footage film, Conner was a singular member of both the underground film community and the flourishing San Francisco art world, achieving international standing early in his career. His work across a broad range of mediums touches pointedly on various themes of postwar American society, from the excesses of a burgeoning consumer culture to the dread of nuclear apocalypse. Conner’s diverse practice also anticipated the fluidity between mediums that is a hallmark of 21st-century art making. In addition to moving images and assemblages, he produced paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints, photographs, installations, and conceptual interventions.

  • AVANT 2016 - So Is This

    The 13th edition of AVANT is a tribute to Michael Snow’s film So Is This. A film that consists only of text and challenges the idea that film, or language, refers to a surrounding world. This, in So Is This is simply the event that unfolds when the film takes place.

    Besides Michael Snow (Canada) the filmmakers Els van Riel (Belgium), Esther Urlus (Netherlands) and Elke Groen (Austria) are invited. All three deals with film as an event and with the material specificity of film; van Riel with time, Urlus with the materiality of film colour, and Groen with the actual memory of the film material.
