Are you making sculpture or are you making films?

A homage to Anthony McCall’s ‘solid light film’ Line Describing a Cone (1973) by American artist Gordon Matta-Clark’s will be screened on 16mm film along with the works of British film maker John Smith and German duo Clemens von Wedermeyer and Maya Scweizer.

Like McCall, these artists question what cinema can be. They also test documentary conventions and use the architectural spaces of the city as a stage for weaving historical and socio-economic narratives.

This programme will be a unique opportunity to consider what film offers both as a moving document and as a form of sculptural practice.

Presented in collaboration with The Adam Art Gallery, introduced by Assistant Curator Laura Preston.
