Hanging Out, this year’s artist moving image festival, is programmed by artists Emmie McLuskey, Ima-Abasi Okon and Kimberley O’Neill. As part of their ongoing conversation, the programmers have continually returned to what it means to ‘hang outside’ typical moving image conventions and social structures. The work included in the festival explores themes of repetition, memorial, outside-ness and gesture. The themes listed attempt to articulate a praxis whereby an operation of hanging out is evidenced in film as a network of elements.
Hanging Out includes live performances, screenings, installations and workshops, featuring contributions by Peggy Ahwesh, Basma Alsharif, Ain Bailey, Eric Baudelaire, Appau Jnr Boakye-Yiadom, Garrett Brown*, Jude Browning, Abigail Child, Tony Cokes, Julie Dash, Adam Farah, Aslan Ġoisum, Seamus Harahan, Jessica Higgins, Joe Howe, June Jordan*, Ulysses Jenkins, Steffani Jemison, junglehussi, Annika Kampmann, Kalup Linzy, Babette Mangolte, Cait McKinney and Hazel Meyer, Rory Pilgrim, Poisonous Relationship, Jimmy Robert, Lauren La Rose, Imani Robinson, Sesame Street*, Cauleen Smith, Rhea Storr, Diane Torr, Turf Feinz*, Steina Vasulka, Joyce Wieland, Hype Williams*
Flop to the Floor: a performance lecture, is a newly commissioned work by Glasgow based artist and writer Jude Browning. Exploring notions of female vocality and expectations of formal public address, the script is taken from Browning’s PhD thesis Mouthwork: Staged Presentation and Laboured Expression and draws on the Scottish drag artist Diane Torr, the early 90’s monologues of Karen Finley and Lydia Lunch’s satirical screenplay Psychomenstrum (1989/93).
A new iteration of Adaptive Rhythm by London based artist Appau Jnr Boakye-Yiadom, the project, centred around a pre-recorded video of a martial artist/stunt person, incorporates percussion from around the world through live recording. Ain Bailey presents a sonic autobiography playback session, based on the ‘Epiphanies’ column that she was invited to write for the December 2019 issue of The Wire magazine. Expect sounds of disco, unbridled joy, grief and more.
Throughout the festival, artists’ moving image is presented in thematic clusters, including Rat Life and Diet in North America by Joyce Wieland screened on 16mm; Le education sentimentale by Jimmy Robert; a selection of short pieces dispersed throughout the programme by Adam Farah and Seamus Harahan; and Babette Mangolte’s feature length film Camera : Je, La Camera. The festival includes Eric Baudelaire’s 2019 feature length film Un film Dramatique, Baudelaire’s work made collaboratively with students from the film group at Dora Maar middle school in Saint-Denis, France, was shot over a period of four years and follows the young film makers as they become the authors and subjects of the film. We are delighted to feature to the Scottish premiere of Rory Pilgrim’s Visual Album Software Garden. Centred on emancipatory concerns, Pilgrim’s work aims to challenge the very nature of how we come together, speak, listen and strive for social change through sharing and voicing personal experience.
Running alongside the screenings and performances will be a space for gathering and hanging out in T4, including research materials and works pivotal to the formation of the programmes themes, including pieces by Joe Howe and Imani Robinson. This informal space for further reading and exploration is free to enter throughout Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday will culminate in a party at Queens Park Bowling Club with DJ sets by Poisonous Relationship and junglehussi, 8pm – 12am, free entry.
