Event description

Description

Telling Invents Told is the first collection of writings by artist and filmmaker Lis Rhodes. It includes the influential essay ‘Whose History’ alongside texts from works such as Light Reading, Pictures on Pink Paper or A Cold Draft, together with new and previously unpublished materials. Since the 1970s, Rhodes has been making radical and experimental work that challenges hegemonic narratives and the power structures of language. Her writing addresses urgent political issues – from the refugee crisis to workers’ rights, police brutality, discrimination and homelessness – as well as film history and theory, from a feminist perspective. An important figure at the London Film-Makers Co-operative, Rhodes was also a founding member of Circles, the first British distributor of film and video by women artists.

Join us for an in-conversation with Lis Rhodes, Aura Satz and Maria Palacios Cruz (The Visible Press).



Nottingham Contemporary’s public programme is jointly funded by Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham.
