Jerwood Staging Series, No Maps for These Territories

Jerwood Space, London
7 Jul 2016, 6.30 - 8.30pm

An evening of film screenings featuring work by Emma Charles,  Melanie Gilligan, Myles Painter, Matt Parker, and Lance Wakeling curated by Emma Charles & Dave Charlesworth.

London-based artist Emma Charles is working in collaboration with curator Dave Charlesworth to produce a touring screening programme as part of her ACE/ZKM funded film project White Mountain. The films offer a series of different encounters with data space. Some of the works focus on huge data centre infrastructures – at the point at which ‘security’ and freedom butt against one another – whereas others explore the omnipresent, occasionally malevolent, structures of social ordering. Other works consider the scattered chaos of an artist’s desktop, where the frustrations of creativity play back and forth, between the physical and the virtual. Emma Charles was commissioned to exhibit in the Jerwood Visual Arts Project Space in 2014.

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