Screening: Wendy Clarke joins us for a day dedicated to exploring her experimental video practice through screenings and discussions.
The event will examine Clarke’s collaborative filmmaking practice, live video streaming and participatory video. It will also consider her early collaborations with her mother, filmmaker Shirley Clarke and how these informed her later projects. Followed by a discussion with the artist.
Works screened will include:
- A collection of Clarke’s Love Tapes project (1977-ongoing) taken from over 2,500 videos made of people sharing their thoughts on love
- A selection from Clarke’s One-on-Ones (1991-94), a series of video dialogues between men at California Institution for Men in Chino, California
- Documentation of Clarke’s live video installations and streaming experiments.
Organised by Kim Coleman and Charlotte Procter.
