Opens 5th October 2017 – a massive show of work in central London in a huge space that will include a lot of great moving image/installation stuff:
Everything At Once

This October, Store Studios will host Everything At Once, an extensive off-site exhibition featuring 24 artists currently shown at Lisson Gallery in celebration of its 50th anniversary.
The stellar line-up will present work by a range of international artists like Ai Weiwei, Anish Kapoor, Marina Abramović, Cory Arcangel, Julian Opie, Richard Long, Lawrence Weiner and more, as well as featuring previous VF collaborators Haroon Mirza, Rodney Graham, Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg.

Rwandan-born Dutch artist Christian Nyampeta works across art, design and theory in an ongoing enquiry into ways of living together.
Words after the World is an exhibition which builds on Nyampeta’s recent residency at Camden Arts Centre. During this time, Nyampeta hosted a scriptorium, in which he convened a working group to translate Francophone texts by philosophers such as Alexis Kagame and Maniragaba Balibutsa. This collective structure led to the production of the script for Nyampeta’s new film, which conveys a fictional writer attempting to complete a novella at a time when the use of existing words is restricted by copyright: as a result, the writer is compelled to craft new words in order to avoid both silence and persecution.
Featuring Ming Smith, Frida Orupabo and Missylanyus. The Serpentine presents the work of the acclaimed US filmmaker, cinematographer and artist Arthur Jafa. Across three decades, Jafa has developed a dynamic, multidisciplinary practice ranging from films and installations to lecture-performances and happenings that tackle, challenge and question prevailing cultural assumptions about identity and race.
I recommend….Mat Collishaw at Blain/Southern Gallery
this show contains an extraordinary 3d zoetrope sculpture that is perfect preparation before Paul Tarrago’s screening seminar on ‘the single frame’
7 April 2017 – 27 May 2017
4 Hanover Square
London W1S 1BP
Collishaw worked with evolutionary psychologist Geoffrey Miller – whose theory is that the origins of art stem from natural instincts of courtship and reproduction – to produce the title work and centrepiece of the exhibition. TheCentrifugal Soul is a sculpture in the form of a zoetrope, a pre-film animation device that produces the illusion of motion through rapid rotation and stroboscopic light.
In The Centrifugal Soul, Mat Collishaw’s exhibition at Blain|Southern, the artist presents new sculpture, installation and paintings. Drawing on various forms of illusion, the exhibition explores ideas of superficial truth and the erosive effect of our primal urges for visual supremacy.
This ends soon – 9th October- but it is quite spectacular, nicely done, and worth the adventure into a pretty fascinating space
The Colony is a new film installation by Vietnamese artist and filmmaker Dinh Q. Lê on the site of one of London’s earliest cinemas, Peckham’s Electric Theatre which opened in 1908. Lê’s films immerse the viewer in the desolate environment of the Chincha Islands off the coast of Peru.
South African artist William Kentridge (b.1955, Johannesburg) is renowned for his animated expressionist drawings and films exploring time, the history of colonialism and the aspirations and failures of revolutionary politics.
In this major exhibition of six large-scale installations by the artist, music and drama are ruptured by revolution, exile and scientific advancement.
This Also at Whitechapel- is very much worth a look.. and it’s free…
Characteristically deploying their strategic combination of humour, information, bold graphics and a subversive use of public space, their latest campaign includes a banner installed on the front of the Gallery and a display of posters and new research.

In Richards’ work, images and sounds are merged into highly affective video works that combine footage from a wide range of sources edited into elegant compositions. His recent projects separate these elements out again, allowing space for multi-channel audio installations that combine sound in a way that is physical and spatial. The video works convene materials according to the silent rhythms and movements of the footage they contain.
The ICA Artists’ Film Biennial 2016 is a five-day celebration of artists’ film and moving image, which takes place from 25–29 May 2016. The Biennial, now in its second edition will offer audiences the opportunity to see some of the best new film and rarely seen works in one place and engage directly with artists, curators and industry practitioners from all over the world.
A few of us in 3rd Yr PTBM have been very lucky to have the opportunity to curate a show in Wimbledon Space (Wimbledon’s gallery) and are excited to be showing films from the LUX archive.
We will be showing work by George Barber, Phillip Hoffman, Lis Rhodes, Guy Sherwin, John Smith, Harrison and Wood and James Richards.
I hope our selection will be relevant and of interest to everyone at Wimbledon but especially for PTBM so hope you can all join us for the private view or get to see the exhibition as it will be running till February!
