Staging and Film Sets

26th July 2018 4-6pm

Grundy Art Gallery, Blackpool

Speakers Will Rose, director Pavilion Leeds; Chris Paul Daniels, artist film maker; Poppy Bowers, exhibitions curator Whitworth Manchester and Annika Wik researcher and curator Stockholm explored artist’s practices that work with and at the intersection of film, installation and performance by considering the role of the site, context and event of curated film works

How does a particular contextual staging of filmworks facilitate certain modes of encounter with both the film and the sited context of its screening?  In which ways does it inform or extend an audience’s individual or indeed collective experience of watching the film? Are some of the questions explored in the evenings talks.
