Malcolm Le Grice and Matthew Noel-Tod are presenting Co-op Dialogues: 1966 – 2016 at London’s Tate Britain on May 16.
The evening is a part of a month-long programme of screenings and conversations hosted by Tate Britain with LUX Moving Image that marks the 50th anniversary since the founding of the London Film-Makers’ Co-operative (LFMC).
Le Grice has been making experimental film works since the 1960s, favouring abstract and experiential footage and narrative over concepts and working with live moving images in art presentation contexts —perhaps a little like this one. Noel-Tod, who also works with experiential moving image —often employing the act of reframing by referencing past thinking on cinema in philosophy in his films —recently paid tribute to Le Grice’s seminal expanded cinema work ‘Castle 1’ with his video, ‘Castle 3.0‘ in 2013.
Both artists will show a selection of their moving image work and afterwards will discuss their practices in relation to the history of the cooperative.
