The Problem of Perspective: I Am the Real Kevin Atherton, 25 October 2016

This discursive screening re-presents a body of films by artist Kevin Atherton made in Leeds in the early ‘70s. Coming from the Isle of Man, Atherton was amongst the first students to study Fine Art at the newly established Leeds Polytechnic in 1969 – a context for art education that became nationally renowned for its radicalism. Atherton's Leeds films wittily confront ideas of individualism, cultural identity and memory, prefiguring his pioneering early video and live performance work.

Following the screening Atherton will be joined in conversation with Jon Wood, Research Curator at the Henry Moore Institute.

At 6.15-8.15pm
Hyde Park Picture House, Leeds

General admission: £5
Unemployed, students and low-waged: Free
