How does the moving image change when relocated from the cinematheque to the gallery of the museum? Does this changed spatial experience create a different aesthetic experience? A different political experience? Reflecting on their work as curators of the films of two artists who move amongst these spaces, BAMPFA’s own Susan Oxtoby and Kate MacKay discuss the screen-based work of William Kentridge and Apichatpong Weesrasethakul.
Guest curator Yi Yi Mon (Rosaline) Kyo offers a series of gallery talks highlighting works by contemporary Asian and Asian American artists.
