The British Council Ukraine, Film London and Kyiv’s DzygaMediaLab are thrilled to announce that the ‘Moving Pictures: Artists’ Films from the Film London Jarman Award’ exhibition will be going on tour in Ukraine. Running April – July 2017, the show will visit the cities of Ternopil, Kherson, Dnipro and Kyiv.
Moving Pictures is a film programme that shows the strength and experimental nature of films and moving image works created by visual artists in the UK.
Developed by the British Council Visual Arts and Film teams in collaboration with Film London, this innovative programme of films by artists brings together the creations of 18 auteurs who have been nominated for the prestigious Film London Jarman Award during the past seven years. The programme features work by Turner Prize winners Laure Prouvost and Elizabeth Price, British Art Show 8 artists John Akomfrah, Rachel Maclean and James Richards, and important pieces by Ed Atkins, Clio Banard and Ben Rivers, amongst others.
For the Ukrainian tour, each screening will feature a contextual introduction as well as professional commentary and discussion led by DzygaMediaLab facilitators Ianina Prudenko, an independent curator and researcher of new media arts, lecturer, founder and curator of Ukraine’s Media Art Open Archive; and Yulia Kuznietsova, film critic and coordinator of DzygaMediaLab and Ukraine’s Media Art Open Archive. A free printed programme guide in Ukrainian will also be made available to the public at each screening.
Moving Pictures is part of the British Council Visual Arts team’s International Touring Exhibitions Programme; to date, it has been screened in the UK, Ireland, France, Spain, Estonia, Egypt, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, China, New Zealand and India.
