JARMAN AWARD 2010 Touring Programme
Date: 25 September 6:30pm
Film London and Picture This present a special screening showcasing work by the four artists shortlisted for this year’s prestigious Jarman Award: Spartacus Chetwynd; Ben Rivers; Zineb Sedira; and Emily Wardill.
Works include; The Walk to Dover (2005) by Spartacus Chetwynd; A World Rattled of Habit (2008) by Ben Rivers; Middle Sea (2008) by Zineb Sedira; and The Diamond (Descartes Daughter) (2008) by Emily Wardill.
Inspired by visionary avant-garde film-maker Derek Jarman, the Jarman Award was launched in 2008 to recognise artists working with the moving image whose work, like Jarman's, resists conventional definition, encompassing innovation and excellence. The winner of the annual Award not only receives a £10,000 cash prize, they also win a unique broadcast commission - to make four artworks for Channel 4's acclaimed Three Minute Wonder Slot (3MW). Any mid-career artist film-maker, whose work embraces the spirit and the legacy of Jarman's highly experimental and risk-taking approach, can be put forward for this annual prize. The winner of the 2010 Jarman Award will be announced at the Whitechapel Gallery on 5 October 2010 (11am - 5pm) following a day of talks and screenings profiling the shortlisted artists on Saturday 2 October.
The Jarman Award 2010 is presented by Film London and Channel 4, in association with the Whitechapel Gallery.
