Dani Leventhal screening + Q&A @ ICA, Oct 27

26 October 2016

Dani Leventhal is presenting a screening of new work, followed by a Q&A at London’s ICA on October 27.

Showing as part of the ICA’s Artists’ Film Club programme, the Columbus-based artist works in video, installation and drawing to explore the relationship between the personal and the political. She will partake in a Q&A, led by writer Mason Leaver-Yap, following a screening of new works-in-progress, ’17 New Dam Rd.’ (2012) and ‘Hard As Opal’ (2015) will screen

Across media, Leventhal works with collage, collecting and accumulating images, materials and footage to then creating montages that are subject to a rigorous editing process. The incongruous images result in personal exploration of the lived experience, “unearthing a curious beauty in the minutiae of everyday life.”

See the ICA website for details.**
