Event description

Description

Join our summer party, celebrating the launch of our new exhibition by pioneering filmmaker, Lis Rhodes, with an evening of art, film, music and even a BBQ.


Lis Rhodes, Dresden Dynamo, 1971-72. 16mm film, 5 min. Courtesy of the artist and LUX.

Art

We launch the first-ever survey of Lis Rhodes - a pioneer of experimental filmmaking and a major figure in the history of artists working with film in Britain. The exhibition will span almost 50 years of Rhodes’ work, from her groundbreaking formal experiments in films from the 1970s, to her later political works which look at issues including women’s rights, nuclear power, migrant labour and surveillance.


Alan Sahin

Music

Nkisi will be playing her unique sound, which unites Hyper-Modern Club sounds with Afrocentric Rhythms. She established herself in London’s underground scene via her vivid club-fuelled tracks, demanding full attention with exhilarating energy when heard.



Barbecue

We'll be serving award-winning and locally-sourced grub from the famous Snobby Butcher - Johnny Pusztai. We have both meat and veggie options (no vegan). Cash payment only.


Our galleries are open 6.30-9pm.

The party continues in our bar until 11pm.


Lis Rhodes was the winner of the Freelands Award 2017.
