Anthea Hamilton

  • Whitechapel Gallery - Performance - Anthea Hamilton

Past Event

This event was on Sat 13 May 2017, 3pm

Combining live performance, animation and sound, Anthea Hamilton presents a new work created for the Whitechapel Gallery that takes the form of a live film. Structured as a series of real and imagined telephone calls, the piece will be assembled and activated in real time, with a series of playful interventions and interruptions by performers.

Developed on the occasion of the Eduardo Paolozzi exhibition, the piece uses collage and reproduction, sampling broad references from popular culture to mime and classical music.
