Sunday afternoon at the London Art Fair – a popular show selling work to the general public.

A group show at Kettles Yard named after John Smith’s 1975 film “Associations.” AS SO CI ATIONS brings together an international group of artists to explore language, narrative, subjectivity, iconic imagery and the manipulative potential of cinema. Much of the work feels retro due to the use of analogue film/slide projectors and the constant clicking and whirring of carousels and 16mm film projectors. Read More >
