Celebrating the work of the artists shortlisted for Film London’s Jarman Award 2023, we present a day of encounters across the gallery with the shortlisted artists – Ayo Akingbade, Andrew Black, Julianknxx, Sophie Koko Gate, Karen Russo and Rehana Zaman.
Throughout the day, experience readings, discussions and performances with the featured artists, alongside drop-in screenings of their short films. Films in the programme use animation, analogue film, poetry and choral song to explore narratives around air pollution and inequality, cryptocurrency, the queering of the British countryside and gentrification.
The winner of the Film London Jarman Award will be announced on the 21 November at the Barbican Centre. The award is presented in partnership with the Whitechapel Gallery and Barbican.
Inspired by visionary British filmmaker Derek Jarman, the Award recognises and supports artists working with the moving image. The shortlisted artists illustrate the spirit of inventiveness within moving image, highlighting the breadth of creativity and craftsmanship the medium has to offer, as well as its powerful ability to engage and provoke audiences. The Award comes with a £10,000 prize.
