SUPERLUX Masterclass with Beatrice Gibson
Fri 1 Mar 2019 / 3.30–4.30pm
Join artist Beatrice Gibson for a SUPERLUX Masterclass that elaborates on the process, methodology and production of her recent film I Hope I’m Loud When I’m Dead, which screens as part of GFF19 on 28 February. She will be in conversation with Nicole Yip, Director of LUX Scotland.
Beatrice Gibson is an artist and filmmaker based in London. Her films are often improvised in nature, exploring the pull between chaos and control in the process of their own making. Drawing on figures from experimental modernist composition and literature – such as Cornelius Cardew, Robert Ashley and William Gaddis – Gibson’s films are often participatory, incorporating co-creative and collaborative processes and ideas. Gibson is twice winner of The Tiger Award for best short film at the Rotterdam International Film Festival and winner of the 2015 Baloise Art Prize at Art Basel. In 2013 she was nominated for both the Jarman Award and the Max Mara Art Prize for Women. Gibson’s films are distributed by LUX, London and Argos, Brussels.
I Hope I’m Loud When I’m Dead currently features in Crone Music, Gibson’s solo exhibition at Camden Arts Centre in London, which seeks out an explicitly feminist lineage through which to recast the syncretic, collective and participatory nature of Gibson’s practice. The exhibition continues until 31 March 2019.
