Jarman Award Screening

Tuesday 18 October / 6.30pm / The Box / £4 / £3

 

See a diverse and thought-provoking programme of artists’ moving image and hear from one of the six shortlisted artists for this year’s Jarman Award: Sophia Al Maria, Cécile B. Evans, Shona Illingworth, Mikhail Karikis, Rachel Maclean and Heather Phillipson

 

The shortlisted artists’ accomplishments for 2016 span single-screen works and immersive gallery installations, animation and intricate CGI techniques to ‘found footage’ sourced from YouTube. Their subjects range from memory and sound, future worlds and forgotten landscapes, the glitz of Gulf culture, pulsing beats of pop with dazzling montages of consumerism and the effect of new technology on human behaviour. Together, the artists selected for this year’s Jarman Award shortlist provide an important insight into the country’s very best moving image artists working now.

 

Inspired by visionary filmmaker Derek Jarman, the Jarman Award recognises and supports artists working with moving image and celebrates the spirit of experimentation, imagination and innovation in the work of artist filmmakers.
