This year’s third show at The Royal Standard is Misdirect Movies. A visually exciting group exhibition continues the lineage of collage; to cut up, reposition and (re)arrange cinema’s near endless supply of imagery. Orson Welles’ unfinished version of Don Quixote features a scene where Quixote slashes at a screen in a cinema. This scene acts as a lynchpin for the ideas contained within the curatorial strategy of this exhibition, expanding on the notion of Quixotic, intertextuality and the slippage of reality and illusion.
