Saturday 18 February, 6.15pm
CCA Cinema, Glasgow

Book Tickets, £10/ £8 concessions

Ben Rivers’ portrait of the painter Rose Wylie, predominantly filmed in her studio in Kent features the two artists discussing the artistic process. Rivers constructs his film fragmentally, a series of collages documenting the creative process. Is the film a study of Rose Wylie’s life as an artist, or does it develop into analysing Rivers’ creative practices in studying such a figure, and as such art as a whole? This screening will also include Rivers’ recent short film work There Is A Happy Land Further Awaay, (2015)

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director, Ben Rivers.
