Exploring Jeff Keen
Saturday 19 November 2011
Old Courtroom, 118 Church Street, Brighton
Presentations and discussion 11:00-15:30h
Brighton-based artist and film-maker Jeff Keen is one of the great figures of the British postwar avant-garde. Keen's work embodies a wild spirit of anarchic play, a fascination with surrealism, and a love of popular culture. A year-long retrospective in 2011/12 of Keen's work will take place throughout Brighton & Hove. The retrospective will be launched with the event Exploring Jeff Keen, a day of presentations, screenings and discussion on Keen’s work and its curation. Speakers include Frank Gray (Cinecity and Screen Archive South East), Stella Keen (Jeff Keen's daughter), William Fowler (Curator, Artists’ Moving Image, BFI) and Curators Jenny Lund and Suzie Plumb of Brighton Museum & Art Gallery.
