The IFI and AEMI present a discussion with Peggy Ahwesh and Julie Murray, hosted by Temple Bar Gallery + Studios. This discussion examines the distinct and overlapping interests of these two acclaimed filmmakers, both of whom will be in attendance for a screening of their films at the IFI, followed by the discussion at TBG+S.
Over several decades of practice Peggy Ahwesh has created one of the more heterogeneous bodies of work in the pantheon of experimental cinema. From early films shot on Super8 to recent forays into digital animation, Ahwesh’s work powerfully addresses questions of feminism, cultural identity and performance.
Drawing upon her background in Fine Art, Julie Murray has produced a significant body of work which has shown at and/or is included in the collections of MOMA, the Whitney Museum of Modern Art, and the Pompidou Centre. Born in Ireland, Murray has been based in the U.S since the 1980s and aemi is delighted to present a screening that looks at work from several parts of her career.
