About

A retrospective exhibition that positions the gallery space as a means to refract the work of influential cultural theorists and filmmakers, Laura Mulvey and Peter Wollen through the prism of art.

Primarily known for their ground-breaking essays—such as Wollen’s, Godard and Counter Cinema: Vent d'Est (1972) and Mulvey’s, Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema (1975)—engagement with art and artists has also been a central dimension of Mulvey and Wollen’s activities.

Featuring moving image works, audio recordings, drawings, diagrams, photographs and archival materials in order to map the co-ordinates of two transdisciplinary, overlapping practices, the exhibition includes collaborations, conversations and interactions with esteemed figures in arts and culture such as Faysal Abdullah, Kathy Acker, Emma Hedditch, Mary Kelly, Mark Lewis, Yvonne Rainer and Kerry Tribe.

As well as proposing that Mulvey and Wollen can be understood within the broader frame of artists or art theorists influenced by and contributing to the discourses of feminism and socialism, the exhibition utilises the art school context to suggest their important role as teachers and the mutual influence between educational and artistic work.

The exhibition is co-curated by Oliver Fuke and Nicolas Helm-Grovas in association with Cooper Gallery, DJCAD, University of Dundee.
