This is Now: Film and Video After Punk
Plymouth College of Art, Tavistock Place, Plymouth PL4 8AT
23rd Sept 9am – 6pm, 24/25th Sept 10am – 4pm.
The Gallery, Plymouth College of Art and LUX Artist Moving Image Agency are pleased to present This is Now: Film and Video After Punk, an exhibition that looks at artists’ film and video from the post-punk era in the UK (1978–85). This period saw an explosion in alternative and experimental filmmaking amongst clubbers, art students, new romantics and members of the post-punk scene, who embraced cheap new domestic technologies and used them to bold and uncompromising effect. This exhibition forms part of a major touring project developed in partnership with the BFI National Archive. The UK tour has been supported by the BFI, awarding funds from The National Lottery.
