LONDON SEEN – LOOP FESTIVAL BARCELONA
Saturday 22 May
London Seen offers an overview of venues for moving image practices in London through the presentation of a number of spaces and platforms, invited on the basis of their critical engagement with and display of video and film. The event will consist of a combination of presentations and brief screenings followed by a panel discussion. Each participating venue has selected a moving image work or a curatorial project that exemplifies their approach. The idea is that these presentations will provide a basis for critical reflections around the participants’ respective location, mission and mode of operation on the London art scene. The participants are:
Artprojx // Film and Video Umbrella // FormContent // Gasworks // LUX // MOT International
David Gryn will be discussing the processes of collaboration between his own Artprojx company and the artist David Blandy. How they create projects, the interactions and the outcomes. Gryn and Blandy have done projects in Liverpool at the A Foundation, Artprojx at the Prince Charles Cinema, Artprojx Dojo at Artprojx Space, Whitechapel Gallery, Tate Britain and Anthology Film Archives in NY and most recently as part of the David Gryn produced ICA Live Weekend – Performance projects with Choose Your Character.
