The GWW Centre for Visual Culture and the Department of Film and Visual Culture at the University of Aberdeen is pleased to announce
A new series of Film and Visual Culture events, including research seminars, talks, interviews, screenings, performances and exhibitions.
Our first event of the year takes place on Wednesday, 5 October at 18:00 in the Sir Duncan Rice Library Gallery: a screening of Stuart Armitt’s documentary film Lure of the Lost, followed by a discussion with the Director and Anthony Schrag, the artist whose walk from Huntly (Scotland) to Venice in 2015 is the subject of the film. The conversation will be led by PhD student Alan Macpherson. The event is free, but booking is recommended – click here to reserve your spot! This event is part of the new ICE CUBE series, which will fill the space of the Sir Duncan Rice Library Gallery in between exhibitions.
In the coming months we will also host a new series entitled Cafe Artistique, which looks at exhibitions taking place on campus. In November, as part of the Festival of Social Science, we will screen a documentary film about local artists Brian and Bibo Keeley, and discuss their “Shared Heart” project and exhibition, which documented Brian’s heart transplant surgery and the recovery process as experience by both of them.
Finally, this autumn Professor Alan Marcus will host the Director’s Cut in its 10th year!
We hope to see you at one of our exciting events! Watch this space for more information on upcoming events!
