The Birkbeck Institute of the Moving Image, The Peltz Gallery & The Hub: Centre for Media, Culture and Creative Practice, Birkbeck, are hosting a series of events in collaboration with the June Givanni Pan-African Cinema Archive and Chelsea College of Arts (University of the Arts London).
The exhibition, screenings, and discussions for Movements will take place across two locations – University of the Arts London (Chelsea College of Arts Triangle and Cookhouse Galleries); and the Birkbeck Institute of the Moving Image, University of London – to explore a new sphere for the archive and to echo Stuart Hall’s statement on ‘context’.
A three-day film screening will take place in the Triangle Gallery at Chelsea College of Arts. Films have been chosen for their thematic connection to ‘Cities’.
The adjacent exhibition in the Cookhouse Gallery aims to showcase a series of connections between the various elements of the archive such as film and festival posters, audio interviews and recordings with filmmakers artists and writers; and personal memories evoked through the photographic collection including, productions stills and snapshots; in addition, a series of films repeated throughout the day will change on a daily basis.
