Gallery Run: Exhibition Picture Show

Film, most agree, is an art form, although a passive one – an audience in a dark room eager to lose itself. But art is often claimed as a call to action, or at least interaction, in which the viewer enlists and engages. Three exhibitions this month explore the medium of film, the white cube […]

Art Metropolis, Living Memory
