IKG Presents Film Days

WHEN: Tues, Feb 28 until Thurs, Mar 2, 2017

WHERE: IKG Gallery Number 2

The Illingworth Kerr Gallery is delighted to announce a three-day programme of film screenings hosted in Gallery Two from Tuesday, February 28 until Thursday, March 2, 2017. Each day a different film programme will present a series of films curated by different arts professionals.

This initiative reflects the intention of periodically activating the galleries by means of activities other than the static exhibition format. Similarly to IKG LIVE (a festival dedicated to performance, live and time-based art) and our rolling programme of public events and workshops, IKG FILM DAYS intends to explore other ways of using our exhibition spaces so as to engage different practitioners and speak to diverse audiences. Elisabetta Fabrizi and Justin Waddell are the two Guest Curators who have conceived alongside Lorenzo Fusi (Visiting Academic Curator at the IKG) the programmes for this edition of FILM DAYS.
