Following James Richard's screening Abyss Film at the Irish Film Institute, the artist will be in conversation with Benjamin Cook, Director LUX.
This discussion will also celebrate and elaborate on the work of Ian White and his legacy, coinciding with the recent publication of Here is Information. Mobilise (published by LUX).
By the time of his early death in 2013, Ian White was a uniquely influential figure: an artist, performer, curator, teacher and writer, whose ideas had affected a generation of artists working with the moving image. Throughout his various roles, he developed a constellation of concepts around ‘cinema’ - understood by him less as a physical space, or a particular canon of films, but rather as a set of social practices open to radical (political) possibilities.
PLASTIK Festival is a collaboration with LUX Artists’ Moving Image, and is presented in partnership with the Irish Film Institute, Temple Bar Gallery + Studios and IADT Dublin. The festival is made possible through the generous support of the Arts Council.
