Work, Play and Protest (12A*) + Panel Discussion

Artists in Residence

Two people stand talking in a gallery.

In this moving image programme, three artists across three different points of time consider the relationship between artists and the city.

Three very different films look at the relationship between artists and the city at three points in time, across a variety of distinct moving image approaches.

Derek Jarman’s profile for South of Watford see’s the artist guide the viewer across the Thames by boat, tracing his artistic development and biography through his occupancy of warehouses across the 60s and 70s.

We then jump to the mid-1990s for a profile of Sarah Lucas at the height of her fame, in Two Melons and a Stinking Fish, capturing the moment of the YBAs across openings at the ICA and the White Cube.

The final film by artist Niki Kohandel captures the preparation for the Slade School of Art 2020 degree show interspersed with anti-racist occupations of the building from the following year.

Followed by a panel discussion with Anna Minton, Andrew Harris and Morgan Quaintance.
