Today sees the launch of our series of Random Acts commissions for Channel 4, plus a programme of related events.
Our season of Random Acts commissions for Channel 4 commences on 4 December 2013 at 1.15am with the broadcast of Gail Pickering’s Karaoke (2013). Thursday 5 December sees the broadcast of Steven Claydon’s Grid & Spike (2013) and the season continues into early 2014 with works by Duncan Campbell, Elizabeth Price and Mark Aerial Waller.
This Friday at 1pm our lunchtime Culture Now talk features artist Mark Aerial Waller, one of the ICA’s Random Arts commissioned artists, in conversation with Steven Cairns, ICA Associate Curator of Artists’ Film and Moving Image, on his film, the process and how the projects fits into his wider practice.
Then on Thursday 12 December at 8pm we hold an event celebrating our Channel 4 Random Acts commissions with artists Duncan Campbell, Steven Claydon, Gail Pickering, Elizabeth Price and Mark Aerial Waller featuring a unique screening of the newly commissioned shorts alongside live extensions of the work. The event profiles the five newly commissioned films, alongside a series of live performative events by Steven Claydon, Gail Pickering and Mark Aerial Waller that expand upon their new 3 minute works.
An exciting end to 2013!
The new short artists’ films commissioned and produced by the ICA and made by artists Duncan Campbell, Steven Claydon, Gail Pickering, Elizabeth Price and Mark Aerial Waller build on our strong reputation for championing artists’ film and moving image. These films will also be available to watch on the ICA and Random Acts websites.
