UnSpooling - Artists & Cinema

From Sat 2 October to Sun 9 January 2011
Ming Wong - Life and Death in Venice (detail)


A series of fly-posters reconstructing Jean-Luc Godard’s infamous long take from Weekend;a remix of Stanley Kubrick’ s 2001: A Space Odyssey and a guerrilla-style re-enactment of Luchino Visconti’s Death in Venice are just some of the things art lovers and cinema-goers alike may encounter as they explore the work of 20 artists dispersed throughout Cornerhouse and beyond this Autumn.

Celebrating 25 years of Cornerhouse and produced as part of AND (Abandon Normal Devices) Festival, curators Andrew Bracey and Dave Griffiths present UnSpooling – Artists & Cinema, a large and ambitious group exhibition that straddles two giant bodies of reference – art and cinema – showing 20 international artists.

Alex Pearl, Ben Gwilliam & Matt Wand, Benedict Drew, Cartune Xprez, David Claerbout, Elizabeth McAlpine, Gebhard Sengmüller, Greg Pope, Harald Smykla, Juhana Moisander, Kerry Laitala, Mario Rossi, Michaël Borremans, Ming Wong, Roman Kirschner, Sally Golding, Sheena Macrae, Stefan Zeyen, Wayne Lloyd
Andrew Bracey, Dave Griffith
