Bonington Film Night #8: Dirty Pictures, curated by Amy Budd


LOCATION: LECTURE THEATRE 2, NEWTON BUILDING, GOLDSMITH STREET, NOTTINGHAM, NG1 4BU

 

In collaboration with the NTU Fine Art Live Lecture programme, Bonington Film Night #8 will take the form of a short introduction by writer and curator Amy Budd, followed by a curated selection of films that she has entitled Dirty Pictures.

Dirty Pictures comprises of a selection of historic and contemporary diary films, together with examples of surveying films and videos that are explicitly diaristic. Also included are a selection of moving-image works that are more ambiguous. Both personal and expressive in their means of production, they display radical forms of new image-making through poetic renderings of individual observations, memories and reflections.

Featured artists include » Ellen Cantor » Lynn Hershman » Onyeka Igwe » George Kuchar » John Smith
