Study Day, 2 - 5PM
Join Curator Dan Kidner for a Study Day that will explore thinking behind the group exhibition The Inoperative Community; an exhibition of experimental narrative film and video that address ideas of community and the shifting nature of social relations. The exhibition is currently at Raven Row gallery, London, until 14 February, and it focuses on a period that could be described as the long 1970s (1968-84) – all the works were either made during this time, or reflect on the radical social and political movements of the era. This Study Day will include a presentation by Kidner during which he will draw on video footage from works in the exhibition, alongside time for discussion. To book your place, click here.
