Holdsworth, Claire [Curator of an exhibition], Mulvey, Laura [Curator of an exhibition] and Clayton, Sue [Curator of an exhibition] (2017) Towards Other Cinemas : a critical re-assessment of 1970s independent film and video.

Abstract

Four screenings curated by Claire M. Holdsworth (Kingston School of Art) with writer and director Professor Sue Clayton (Goldsmiths University London) and theorist Professor Laura Mulvey (Birkbeck, University of London) in partnership with LUX, London and the Whitechapel Gallery. Each installment examined experimental film- and video- making in 1970s Britain, bringing together thematic collections of diverse works to explore how younger generations re-activate this recent past, engaging with essays in a new collection of writings. 4037 The opening event (Saturday 16 September) screened works by Clayton and Mulvey at Close-Up cinema, with a Q&A chaired by Helen de Witt (Curator, BFI). This was followed by a day-long series (Sunday 17 September) at the Whitechapel Gallery cinema: ‘Activated Spaces’ (chair, Clayton) with guest speaker Dr Steve Presence (Research Fellow, University of the West of England, Bristol); ‘Listening In’ (chair, Holdsworth) with Dr Lucy Reynolds (Senior Lecturer and researcher, Westminster University, London); and ‘Time and Place’ (chair Mulvey) with Kodwo Eshun (Lecturer in Contemporary Art Theory at Goldsmiths, Visiting Professor, Haut Ecole d’Art et Design, Genève and co-founder of the Turner Prize nominated Otolith Group).
