Video Shop
24th February 2012

Picture This is pleased to announce the opening of its new project space, Video Shop, with a book launch, screening and presentation of the 80s German video art project, Infermental.

Video Shop is open four days a week, from Thursday to Sunday, 1pm - 6pm. It hosts a regular programme of exhibitions, with films and videos presented on a monitor. 

A Detour Around Infermental will be the first Video Shop presentation, and the first project in the new exhibition and event programme of Picture This' recently appointed director Dan Kidner. 

The 2012 programme will feature new commissions, screening programmes, talks and symposia. In April Video Shop will host a presentation of films by the late British filmmaker, Marc Karlin, alongside a programme of screenings and symposia at the Arnolfini and Watershed in Bristol. During spring and summer two new films by Jimmy Robert and Cara Tolmie will be produced and presented in Picture This' Studio Space. 

Further events and exhibitions will be announced soon.
