Bonington Film Nights are the latest addition to the Gallery calendar that will punctuate the existing exhibition programme 5 – 6 times a year.
Taking inspiration from the legendary film events that occurred nearly 40 years ago in the Gallery, these screenings will showcase artist films of historical and contemporary importance, frequently collaborating with organisations and individuals from outside the University.
The first season of screenings has been curated by Nottingham-based artist and curatorJoshua Lockwood, with the first event focusing on experimental artist films from the 1960s and 1970s.
This event has been organised in association with LUX, London and will feature » Beverly and Tony Conrad » John Latham » Len Lye » Steina and Woody Vasulka » Guy Sherwin and Paul Sharits.
The majority of these films will be shown in 16 mm.
