For the first in our presentations at Glasgow Film Festival 2016, LUX Scotland presents Copy Errors with artist Duncan Marquiss. Prefacing the premiere of his Margaret Tait Award film Evolutionary Jerks & Gradualist Creeps (2016), Copy Errors is Marquiss’ curated programme of research material and archival films that has informed his award-winning work. From artists’ films to interviews with natural scientists and musicologists, Copy Errors reflects on the analogies and differences between biological evolution and cultural processes. This programme will be followed by a discussion between the artist and LUX Scotland Director Mason Leaver-Yap.
This screening is produced in collaboration with Glasgow Film, the commissioners of the Margaret Tait Award.
