Arnolfini, Bristol, England.

AFTERIMAGE: ENGAGEMENTS WITH THE CINEMATIC is an two-day intervention at the Arnolfini, threading together responses to the multiplicity of issues that impact on the production, distribution and critical reflection of the moving image in an era of mass and intimate media.

Inspirational internationally acclaimed artists, curators and agencies such as: Artangel, David A Bailey, Mike Dibb, Antony Gross, Gil Leung, Gary Stewart, Mark Waugh and the Black Diaspora Moving Cube will be working with be discussing and reflecting on the historical and contemporary impact of cinema as both an industry and scene of cultural production.

These reflections will explore the significance of the moving image within the frame of an increasingly global visual arts ecology, artists engagement with processes of production in cinema, and observations on the curatorial and dialogical negotiations between cinema, gallery and digital platforms, that challenge and configure innovative ways to make the staging of vision memorable.

There will also be a special launch presentation of Omer Fast: In Memory, published by The Green Box which examines the mechanisms of personal experience, memory and history.
