Jerwood Staging Series, Slant - for the Unsettling

Jerwood Space, London
2 Jun 2017, 7-9pm

An evening of films and words in action in the age of American Author Thomas Pynchon come to fruit curated by Gareth Evans.

As the image of the world we expected/hoped to find ourselves/continue living in – liberal, sensitive, just, internationalist – dissolves before our own and other’s eyes, and the image of the world we have long denied – globally unequal, nationalistic, prejudiced, climate-appalled  – rises undeniably into view, we are understandably unsettled on a number of levels, from the personal to the universal. This evening looks ‘slant’ at these significant concerns – through film, readings, performance and 16mm installation – but refuses to look away. It is presided over by the 80th birthday spirit of Thomas Pynchon, one of the great understanders and unsettlers of our time.

Presenting works by Laura Alhach, Louis Benassi, Katya Chitova, Rob Crosse, Webb Ellis, Samuel Fouracre, Keira Greene, Stanley Schtinter, Jessica Sarah Rinland, Irene Solà, Anita Wolska-Kaslow and Andrea Luka Zimmerman.

This event is free to attend but booking is required via Eventbrite.
