2010 - Now Showing 2

New Film and Video from the Arts Council Collection

Touring Exhibition

Now Showing 2 presents six new film and video works that explore some of the current concerns of artists working in the field of the moving image today. It is the second exhibition in this series to showcase the Arts Council Collection's recent film and video acquisitions.

Film and video have emerged as increasingly important media for artists in the past decade, and there is a growing confidence in artists' scope of reference. The diversity of work in Now Showing 2 is testament to the wealth of possibilities offered by the moving image, and to the innovation of artists working within the field today.

Artists represented: Spartacus Chetwynd, Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, Torsten Lauschmann, Simon Martin, Mark Neville and Margaret Salmon.
