Event description

Description

To celebrate the launch of Arcade East, Picnic at Tornado Sands presents a programme of short films, performance and pop up shops featuring local artists, designers and makers.

The film screening features work by Wolfgang Tillmans, Jem Cohen, Kate Coleman, Criodhna Costello, Lizzie Hughes, David Blandy, Fikret Atay, Jane Topping, Katy Dove, Roderick Buchanan, Sadie Benning and others. Exploring the precarious balance between memory and reality, nostalgia and longing, the films journey through shared human connections, chance encounters and loss; fleeting moments in time captured through image and sound.

Following the screening, AE Hutch and The Bad Producer will premiere their new project 'B.P.A.E.' with a film and live soundtrack entitled 'The Tears Of A Girl': a dysphoric journey through the estuarine end of London.

Arcade East was developed to host a themed season of events and installations with a focus on digital practice and innovation each summer as part of a new LCF Arts Programme. Most projects are developed in conjunction with a new an interdisciplinary space, the Digital Learning Lab, which operates at the intersection between traditional and digital practice for design, making and ideation. This summer’s programme focuses on design, technology and performance and this event marks the beginning of a launch series of experimental projects.

The event is curated by Caroline Stevenson, Lecturer in Cultural and Historical Studies at London College of Fashion.
