Making the Cut – George Chakravarthi and Campbell

18 Oct 2010

In conversation with curator Grant Watson. Organised in collaboration with Film and Video Umbrella as part of Free to Air

This October, Iniva collaborates with Film and Video Umbrella to present a series of talks in which artists from London, known for their innovations with the moving image, showcase new work and discuss their practice.

George Chakravarthi de-constructs and re-constructs definitions of gender, racial identity, and sexuality within his live performances, photographs and video installations.  Campbell is a British independent filmmaker who explores historical memory-loss and shame in African diasporic post-colonial cultures. Her work challenges dominant representations of race, sexuality, and gender. Each artist will present a selection of their work, followed by a discussion and Q&A with Grant Watson, Senior Curator at Iniva.

These presentations, collectively entitled ‘Making the Cut’, focus on artists who have made their mark over the last few years, while speculating also on the future of this kind of practice at a time of unprecedented pressure on public funding. Reflecting the extraordinary diversity of London’s cultural life, the three talks taking place at Iniva are accompanied by various events at venues across the capital. This years theme is Freedom to Want.

‘Making the Cut’ is part of ‘Free to Air’, an initiative that is conceived and curated by Film and Video Umbrella, and funded by London Councils.
