Artists Moving Image Festival The Tramway

aerists moving image

16 and 17 November, 2019

‘Hanging Out’, this year’s artists’ 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. The festival will feature, amongst others, performances by Appau Junior Boakye Yiadom and Jude Browning; screenings of work by Steffani Jemison, Carolyn Lazard, Lauren La Rose, Rory Pilgrim, Cauleen Smith and Rhea Storr; and a workshop with Ain Bailey.
