Filmforum is delighted to host the Glasgow-based filmmaker Margaret Salmon in her first los Angeles screening with the US premieres of two of her latest films! Winner of the inaugural MaxMara Art Prize for Women in 2006, and working from a strong feminist perspective, Salmon uses celluloid to film beautiful studies of gender, intimacy, labor, and more. The two we are screening are recent studies of gender roles and gender performance in work and play, in contemporary Britain.
A study day with curator and writer Dan Kidner exploring the artists’ feature film and its relation to other histories of experimental narrative film and video. Drawing on his own recent writing and exhibition projects Kidner will lead an introductory seminar session with participants, screen a number of films and chair a roundtable discussion with leading artist filmmakers and theorists, including Ben Rivers, Margaret Salmon, Erika Balsom and current Spike Island exhibiting artist Maeve Brennan.
