This is Now: Film and Video After Punk
Plymouth College of Art, Tavistock Place, Plymouth PL4 8AT

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.
