Lifting Traces: Memories of London
October 27 – November 11
Proposing a cinematic context in tandem with the National Gallery of Art exhibition Rachel Whiteread, this series expands on ideas set forth in Whiteread’s 1993 sculpture House. Issues around housing, psycho-geography, and notions of home and community in Britain’s capital are explored through artist films utilizing documentary and experimental techniques. Highlighting selected works by London-based filmmakers William Raban (who introduces two programs), Patrick Keiller, and John Smith, the series offers a unique perspective into moving image work that is contemporaneous to, and conterminous with, Whiteread’s sculptural practice. With special thanks to William Raban and LUX Artists’ Moving Image, London.
