Save Event: Films selected by Ben Rivers

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Camden Arts Centre and LUX present a three-part screening programme which expands on Ben Rivers’ exhibition Earth Needs More Magicians and his artist-curated exhibition Edgelands.


The first part of this series takes Edgelands as its starting point, looking at Rivers’ interest in the borders of society, both physical spaces – neglected peripheries of the city and abstractly, where individuals have withdrawn from mainstream culture. 

Curated by Ben Rivers with an introduction by George Clark, Assistant Curator of Film at TATE
