Artprojx at Greenland Street
4 July – 22 July 2007
A Foundation has invited Artprojx to devise a Summer film programme which will be housed in Greenland Street’s purpose-built cinema space. Artprojx is the pre-eminent arts agency showing artists moving image and has worked with arts venues such as Tate, White Cube, Hauser and Wirth and Victoria Miro and with artists such as Mark Wallinger, William Eggleston, William Kentridge, Susan Hiller and Christian Jankowski.
David Gryn has curated a long weekend event scheduled for the end of July, which will include screenings of new and existing works by both emerging and more established artists, some of which will be accompanied by live orchestral and dance performances. Artists who are part of the programme will give a presentation/talk before their screening. The content of the programme attempts to convey the breadth and diversity of artists’ films, and to explore the potential relationship between film and other live artforms such as dance, performance and music.
