Exploring Artists Moving Image course - led by Lucy Reynolds
7th April 2010

This introductory course highlights the key ideas and approaches that have emerged over a century of film and video art.

Artists have been exploring the potential of the moving image since the Surrealists' provocative film experiments. We'll examine thematic and historical aspects, focusing on significant artists and films, from early pioneers to contemporary practitioners. Classes will include clips, screenings and visits to contemporary work at Arnolfini and Picture This Studio.
