JERWOOD STAGING SERIES : THE HARRY MEADLEY SHOW  talk/event
Click to enlarge May 31, 2017 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Harry Meadley performs and films a new work in the form of a late-night talk show, inviting attendees to become part of his ‘live studio-audience’. The presentation investigates the artist’s financial situation, marital status, and general mental state. The Harry Meadley Show continues to further delve into what it means to be an artist. The traditional over-confident and satirical nature of the host is replaced with one of uncertainty and vulnerability – exploring, through humorous delivery, the myriad of obstacles facing artists today.
This event is free to attend but booking is required via Eventbrite:

JERWOOD STAGING SERIES : SLANT - FOR THE UNSETTLING  talk/event
Click to enlarge Jun 2, 2017 7:00pm - 9:00pm
An evening of films and words in action in the age of American Author Thomas Pynchon come to fruit curated by Gareth Evans.
 
As the image of the world we expected/hoped to find ourselves/continue living in – liberal, sensitive, just, internationalist – dissolves before our own and other’s eyes, and the image of the world we have long denied – globally unequal, nationalistic, prejudiced, climate-appalled – rises undeniably into view, we are understandably unsettled on a number of levels, from the personal to the universal. This evening looks ‘slant’ at these significant concerns – through film, readings, performance and 16mm installation – but refuses to look away. It is presided over by the 80th birthday spirit of Thomas Pynchon, one of the great understanders and unsettlers of our time.
 
Presenting works by Laura Alhach, Louis Benassi, Katya Chitova, Rob Crosse, Webb Ellis, Samuel Fouracre, Keira Greene, Stanley Schtinter, Jessica Sarah Rinland, Irene Solŕ, Anita Wolska-Kaslow and Andrea Luka Zimmerman.

RESEARCH SEMINAR: REFRACTED SPACES  talk/event
Click to enlarge Jun 3, 2017 10:00am - 7:00pm
Gasworks presents Refracted Spaces, a research seminar convened by Filipa César and Louis Henderson. Developed as a way to expand on their research for Op Film: An Archaeology of Optics, the event situates the work presented in the exhibition in a wider context, incorporating the critical perspectives and practices of various other thinkers, researchers and artists.
 
Together with Zach Blas, Denise Ferreira da Silva, Ana Naomi de Sousa, Olivier Marboeuf, Margarida Mendes, Rachel O'Reilly, Roque Pina and Lorenzo Pezzani, the artists will discuss the themes of their exhibition in relation to topics ranging from indigenous sea-navigation methods and cartographic law to forensic research of the Mediterranean refugee crisis; from aesthetic strategies of nonlocality, opacity and obscurity that interrupt optical surveillance to systemic racism embedded within technological developments; and from the materiality and ontology of blackness and black light to afrofuturist narratives of submarine resistance.
 
The seminar includes a conversation between Filipa César, Louis Henderson and Roque Pina, the protagonist of their film Sunstone and the keeper of the lighthouse at Cabo da Roca, Portugal – the westernmost point of continental Europe.
Free, book using the buttons provided on our website. Please arrive promptly.
