Making the Cut – Sonia Boyce

25 Oct 2010

In conversation with Marcus Verhagen. 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.

Sonia Boyce’s vibrant, inspirational innovations in photography, video and audio have offered some of the most engaging and affirming artistic interventions of recent years. Boyce shows a selection of works including three film pieces ‘For you, only you’, ‘Crop Over’ and ‘Ho Narro’ and brings us up to speed with her practice and future ambitions in the company of critic and art historian Marcus Verhagen.

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 Rivington Place 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.
