SUPERLUX Seminar with Kate Parker at Document Film Festival 2019

Club Room, CCA, Glasgow
Free, booking via Eventbrite
Book online

Join Kate Parker (City Projects) who will present an overview of her work as part of City Projects, a visual arts organisation that commissions and produces Artists’ Moving Image projects with artists which respond critically to their social and political context.

Recent projects include Solidarity by Lucy Parker, a film about blacklisting in the construction industry, that is being screened in Glasgow on Friday 25 October as part of Document Film Festival 2019. Kate will talk in detail about the development, production and distribution plans of Solidarity (2019).

Earlier this year City Projects published The Politics of Production, a report written by artist Dan Ward which critically examines the current conditions for production of Artists’ Moving Image. Kate will talk about her motivations for publishing it alongside an accompanying text that she wrote in 2016, The Conditions for Artists; Moving Image Production in London Today.

Participants are encouraged to read both texts in advance of the seminar.

 

City Projects was formed in 2003 and is run by its voluntary management committee Fani Arampatzidou (chair), Kate Parker (secretary), Louise Shelley (treasurer) Rabz Lansiquot and Taylor Le Melle.
