The Artists’ Film Biennial, a 4-day celebration of art films and moving images, comes to London’s Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) from July 3 to July 6.
The biennial will feature a myriad of screenings, new performance commissions, talks and panel discussions exploring a wide range of perspectives, including an artist curated programme and live presentation by Hannah Sawtell, and a live video performance by Sam Smith as part of Vdrome.
Also during the event, there’ll be an “Avant-Noir” selection of works that engage with Africa and the African Diaspora, including a screening of Karimah Ashadu‘s Lagos Sand Merchants, as well as a talk with Clunie Reid exploring the influence of contemporary popular culture on moving images and a a day of programming by Ken Okiishi, including ‘My Throat, My Air’ (2013) by Loretta Fahrenholz.
