14TH CINEMA is a by-monthly event and concept exhibition space launched by Smith&Taylor artist collective. Our aim is to think outside the rigid framework of the gallery concept and artist/curator hierarchy to promote a more collaborative approach to both artist practice and exhibition.
14TH CINEMA is a platform for deconstruction, expansion and dialogue.
We attempt to dislocate the architecture of the gallery by not only showing works within the restraints of its walls but also outside and around it. Paired with the fleeting, durational aspect of the event 14TH CINEMA is ostensibly a deconstructive performance in itself.
Going against didactic structures of conventional cinema spectatorship 14TH CINEMA aims to gather artist practices that question the boundaries of the medium they work with and establish new artist -spectator relationships through expanded media and experimental approaches.
14TH CINEMA is run by artists for artists to engage an audience in an unmediated and more personal discourse than what the institution might allow. It is to promote an active engagement and dialogue with the visual culture born out of contemporary concerns.
Our second event is coming up on 14/01/17 at 147 Curtain Road.
