John Smith in person!

A special presentation of works by internationally renowned, London-based film and video artist John Smith. Since 1972, Smith has made over thirty film, video and installation works. The continuing popularity of his work can be explained by his wry sense of humor, his plays on language and the elegance of his visual style. Smith’s films have been widely shown internationally in cinemas, galleries and on television, and have been awarded major prizes at film festivals in Oberhausen, Hamburg, Leipzig, Cork, Palermo, Graz, Uppsala, Bangkok and Chicago. Smith will appear in person to present a selection of his film and video work, including his latest, Lost Sound (2001). Also screening: Associations (1975), Leading Light (1975), The Girl Chewing Gum (1976), Om (1986), The Black Tower (1987), Gargantuan (1992), Blight (1996), and The Waste Land (1999).
