    “... folky but experimental tinge, paid off well - both images and sound, projector and instrument shared a rawness that matched perfectly and gave the personalities onscreen an added layer of meaning which at times was warm, funny, odd, contrasting, insightful...” -Sam Natch, Buenos Aires, argentina

    "We know that this is the first time in history that this type of Parkour material makes it into film; and this project does an incredible job at highlighting the deepest values that move our lives, leaving behind all superficiality." -Walter Bongard, founder PKA, Asociación Argentina de Le Parkour

    "Triumphant!...capturing traceurs' in their element, playing and human, rather than objects of advertisement ....a slight undercurrent of sensuous intimacy.. the lens found and lingered on the traceurs' genuine smiles, the tip of the ear or the playfulness in both movement and pause." - Michelle Duer, writer

    Bio: Christopher May's 16mm and Super-8 film work currently explores sensually visceral qualities of cinema and their topographical relationships with sub-cultural landscapes. His films have screened at Yale University, the Austrian Film Museum, and MALBA - Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires.

    Contra el tiempo IIIBorges y su visión del tiempo a través del cine: Invasión, film argentino de culto recién restaurado, con guión de Borges y Bioy Casares. La sesión empieza con un corto en el que John Latham acelera el tiempo al filmar en seis minutos, página por página, la enciclopedia británica –uno de los libros que Borges más amó- y otro en que David Lamelas halla un equivalente cinematográfico de la lucha de Borges contra la simultaneidad y la sucesión temporal.

    For the first time in the 18-year history of the RCA Curating Contemporary Art MA programme, final year students have decided to present a solo exhibition as their graduate project. Opening on 19 March, this will be the largest UK show by the pioneering East London based artist and filmmaker John Smith.

    Much loved for their wit, formal ingenuity and use of storytelling, Smith's films are as much influenced by the humour of Monty Python as the theories of avant-garde filmmaking. Acknowledging that much of Smith’s work has rarely been shown in a gallery context, a comprehensive selection will be shown together in the RCA galleries.  

    This exhibition offers an opportunity for Smith to return to the RCA where he began making films as a student in the 1970s.  The artist will work closely with the students to create an exhibition that reveals the multiple sensibilities which run throughout his practice.   Rarely seen early films will be shown in the company of more recent work and the exhibition design will emphasise the narrative and structural devices used within Smith’s work. A programme of talks and events will complement the show, providing a focused, in-depth reflection upon individual works.

    Accompanying the exhibition will be a new catalogue on Smith’s practice with critical texts, an extended interview with the artist and a visual essay.  A second publication will follow in June focusing on the solo show as an exhibition format.  Comprised of research through interviews and historical analysis it will also reflect on the making of the exhibition and include documentation of Smith’s work.
