DOCUMENTARY FILM SCREENING
Screening 4.4: Cinemania, dirs. Stephen Kijak and Angela Christlieb, 2002. 80 mins.
Tuesday 15 November 2011, 12 noon
Kirk Gallery, Adam Art Gallery
A hilarious and ultimately sobering portrait of five New York eccentrics who happily live in a fantasy world of ‘being at the movies’. Each present their own spin on the movie-obsessed, yet together share a life governed by the experience of film at the expense of everything else.

IN CAMERA PROJECT SERIES
Shadowgraphs: Photographic Portraits by Len Lye
Opening Friday 18 November 2011, 6pm
19 November-18 December 2011
This is the Adam Art Gallery’s biennial student-led project which enables students to research, write about and present an exhibition on a unique body of work. Curated by Professor Geoffrey Batchen, this exhibition is drawn primarily from the Len Lye Collection at the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery and presents almost all the photogram portraits made by Lye in 1947-a body of work that until recently was neither well known nor fully understood.
At the opening students in the Art History programme will share their knowledge of the histories that have informed their presentation.
The winner of the Chartwell Trust Student Art Writing Prize will also be announced.
All our events are FREE. All welcome.
